Dear Kelly
I can't really judge if you are overweight or not because you don't mention your height in metres so that I can work out your BMI. 54 kg is not heavy, so even if you have gained 10 kg your weight may still be well within the normal level. You may be overeating as a result of psychological problems (anxiety or depression), so if this should be the case then I would recommend that you consult a clinical psychologist so that you can determine what is driving you to seek comfort in food all of a sudden. This could also be a reaction to being too thin in the past??
