Anyone get the depo provera shot and NOT gain a ton of weight?

I got the shot last week and have been feeling GREAT. 

I knew weight gain was a possibility but hadn't really started worrying about it until several people told me they gained LOTS of weight on it. Like 30-40 lbs within the first few months. 

So has anyone had any good depo experiences?

I got the depo shot when I was 18, I never gained any weight, in fact I actually lost 15lbs!

Sorry no help here. I have gained 20 lbs since I've gotten the shot. I've been on it for almost a year now. But here's a bump!

Sorry, I hated it. I gained 60 lbs. in 6 months. It was the only time in my life I have ever been over 150 lbs., including pregnancies.

I was on it when I was a teen, gained a lot of weight and after stopping the shots it took several years to get pregnant

I got the shot once and never gained weight. I also will never get the shot again.
