Seroquel and the Miracle of Losing Weight?

I'm taking 150 mg of Seroquel which has seemed to be helping. But i need to lose preexisting weight..about 40-50 lbs. All i read on the web are horror stories about people gaining 50-100 lbs even when they are doing cardio and weights. My question...anybody here either themselves or know people who have actually been able to lose weight while on seroquel if they followed the usual healthy eating and exercise 3-5 times a week?

'Exercising to failure' makes me feel like a failure.

Why is exercise making me feel depressed? All I read and hear is that exercise goes a long way toward alleviating depression and making one feel better.

I am just able to get over myself for the next day just to have it all happen over again as I somehow force myself back into the gym. [more inside]
