In brief: Most do
Most women are able to take off that weight with diet and exercise.
You do have to make that effort though. It likely won't come off with just coming off of the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). Keep in mind it also won't come off in the first few weeks. A few women just can't seem to lose that weight, but that is rare.
