My last Depo-Provera shot was in jan. I was suppose to get my next 1 in march. I was trying to wait because I've gained a lot of weight. When to get the shot?

In brief: Any time
If you want to resume the depoprovera, you may do so at any time.
Just make sure you have a negative pregnancy test prior to getting the injection. You will be protected 24 hours after receiving the shot.
