Yes, one step at a time and dealing with the depression will help a lot. Try to be easy on yourself.

In addition to one step at a time, try to understand that progress is a series of ups and downs rather than a straight line. "Slips" are just that: It doesn't mean you're a failure... it just means you have more work to do. It's important to try to be optimistic but also to be forgiving of yourself.
