First off, welcome!Second, AWESOME!
I'm olderish at 45 and have a wealth of autoimmune issues. I started Paleo eating last February and haven't felt this good in flipping YEARS! I'm not in it to lose weight, but just the process is giving me those results.
How fit can you get? It's hard to say, but I'd be willing to bet you can get darned fit as long as you keep challenging yourself.
I'm looking forward to watching your progress. You are inspiring!
Good luck CF! I'm also 45, started paleo earlier this year. Lost more than 20kg without trying, knees don't hurt any more, IBS gone away, blood sugar stable, more energetic. I can't believe how much healthier I am - I'm feeling better than I have since I was a teenager. Now looking forward to being sprightly and fit into my sixties and seventies. I am totally in love with paleo!It's possible your depression might improve on paleo - I think the higher fat in the diet helps.
I'm 42 and my non health educated life expectancy was 100.Then I learned about raw paleo and now I expect nothing less than 120 and vibrant till death.I've a feeling we will all grow old together.
we'll see what can be done in January for the following six months when my energy levels take a dive and nothing seems worth doing.

I have a friend who had fantastic results from using a light therapy lamp. She bought a very bright one and sits by it for 20 mins each day. She also decided to meditate while she was doing it as meditation helps relieve depression. She claims it's made a huge difference to her life. She also adds it's worth learning meditation (mindfulness) before the depression sets in and to start using the light from about November time.I guess supplementing with D3 would be a good idea too.
