I doubt whether your weight is within normal limit. If you are overweight wait for sometime. Weight loss may help the urine problem as well.
Depression can cause weight loss, nothing wrong in consulting a psychiatrist, if depression is ruled out, which more common, rare causes for weight loss like carcinoma can be worked out. Do not delay, all the best.
