Depo provera and weight gain

I had 2 depo provera shots. In the past 8 months I have gone from a size 8-16. As soon as I realized it was the depo causing the weight gain I discontinued its use. It was too late. I am off the depo now but I am STILL gaining weight. I gained 10 lbs in the past month! My question is : is the depo still in my system from having a shot November 7? And how long until I start losing weight? Will I lose this weight?
