Dear Shireen
There are so many different factors that could be influencing this type of pronounced weight gain: a) Hormonal changes or deficiencies (thyroid, insulin, female hormones) - ask the dr to test for such deficiencies, b) Depression which can cause pronounced weight gain or loss depending on the patient, c) Turning to food for comfort because of anxiety or feelings of rejection, d) A change in your activity levels, not exercising. If any of these should apply to you then please get some expert help from a medical dr (hormones), a clinical psychologist (depression and comfort eating) and a dietitian for overeating, and a gym for starting to exercise again.
