Can you talk to your Dr about it, are you on any anti depressants? I understand.

It might be your medication - some causes bloating and water retention.

Also when some people are depressed they sit around a lot more so the more inactive you are the less calories you are burning. Personally I'm the opposite and pace around the house all day!

Try not to concentrate too much on your weight, the more you obsess about it the more you will want to eat.
