The paleo diet will help with the depression, especially if you read up on the effects of a ketogenic diet on emotional balance and mood.
I found that double doing on fish oil pills of liquid for the first month really helped get the weight loss going good.
Stock up on your healthy fats and meats, this way you only have healthy options in your fridge when hunger strikes.
after a week or so of feeling good, you will go through a transition to burning fat as a fuel and you will get the keto flu for a week as you adjust, after that your energy will balance and you'll be clearer minded and your mood stabilized. I really recommend you go for the full ketogenic state as soon as you can ,this will get your body burning fat right way, and make losing the weight much easier.
Also ,a little bit of exercise goes a long way, don't listen to the hardcore folks, if your out of shape go slow, you will get fitter and stronger naturally, we are all not meant to be at our peak athletic strength.

It's difficult to overdose on fish oil; I've seen recommendations as high as 1 gram combined DHA/EPA per pound of body weight. For seasonal depression, also look into light therapy:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/light-therapy/MY00195If it's late summer where you are, this is a good time to get the jump on the seasonal affective disorder. Starting light therapy before the days get too short helps me avoid the energy slump during the fall and winter.
Sounds like a real solid start.
My sister has also started the diet, and has been astounded at losing 4 pounds the first week.
After a couple months your cravings for your old cheat foods will go away altogether, and you will get sick when you eat them.
Go slow. I got where I am without really running or doing any sort of calisthenics, just good old fashioned walking, and slow walking too!
Do try to find some hills though, that will do a lot to get your overall fitness level up over time. As you get thinner it's inevitable that you will want to do more.
