So you're now at 58kg, which is a pretty good weight for you given your height. It's perhaps not that surprising then that you're not losing weight, because you might not have any weight to lose. The size issue is another story - I don't know your body structure so I'm guessing, but changing size (as opposed to weight) often takes a lot longer to do, and maybe you just need more time. Again, though, this is a perception, and you've gone through some pretty extreme weight changes in the last six years, so maybe on a settled, stable routine like the one you're hopefully starting out on, you'll see it start to settle with regards to body appearance as well.
As for the weight training question, that might help a little, and you could do body weight work as well - lunges, pushups, squats, dips etc. I'm not sure that'll help you that much, but it's certainly worth adding. On the diet, I'm going to have to pass and refer you to a dietician for advice in that area, because that's very specific. It's important and I'd certainly advise that you look into it. And I'd be treading into an unknown area to give that advice.
So bottom line, I think you should focus on working on your fitness levels, continue to improve your running and let the weight take care of itself. Just go for stablity, as I said, because things have been very up and down for you and the stable routine will be very helpful. So set a short and medium term goal, neither of which involves weight and then just stick with that.
