Assuming your health is now good and your weight is now normal, you can reasonably expect more regular and predictable cycles eventually, but it is unpredictable when that will occur. It is also possible that you may never become very regular. If you would like to conceive you may need to seek assistance from a fertility specialist and otherwise irregular bleeding can be managed medically.
