Welcome to the team!
Some members may have very prohibitive exercise abilities, so weight loss plans should be adjusted to exclude any activities that would prove to be detrimental to your health.
One strategy you might consider in overcoming your depression (and I presume you also experience emotional eating), you might consider spending more time encouraging others here on Spark People. Maybe instead of setting an exercise plan, you can set a 'friendship' plan, where you set a goal of communicating with at least 5 people every day. That would be a great way to increase your own motivation and receive support.
I know exercise has a major positive impact on weight loss, but it's not always an option. So, like in so many other ways, we simply find a way around this minor challenge.
You can do it, I know you can! I would be very interested in hearing your progress in achieving weight loss goals without exercise. It would be a great motivator to others in the team who are going through similar challenges.
