Get yourself: Checked for hormonal imbalance that could contribute to the irregularity of your menstrual periods.

Yes: Please do your best to lose that weight. It scrambles your hormones. However, you should be able to address your acne with your physician's guidance while you are getting your health back otherwise.

Could rapid weight gain over a short period of time be linked to an underactive thyroid?

It's possible.: There are many potential causes of rapid weight gain. Thyroid problems, either too little or too much thyroid hormone, could be the cause, but most people with weight gain turn out to have normal thyroid levels. A doctor might ask a lot of questions about diet, exercise, and other symptoms, then consider ordering labs to see if there is a specific cause such as low (or high) thyroid levels.

What are the benefits and drawbacks of low fat museli with one spoonful of low fat yoghurt? Will it lead to excessive weight gain?

Not the key: Weight is ultimately about calories in and calories out, but it's a fact of life that nobody is really counting. The key to staying trim is a fitness-focused lifestyle, including exercising and choosing friends who exercise. Avoid very greasy, very salty, and very sugary foods as best you can, and learn to limit portions. Exercising helps your brain regulate how much you eat. Best wishes.

Further eval: Your symptoms are concerning and necessitate further medical evaluation with more information, physical exam and very likely some tests. Fluid overload, and subsequently weight gain, can happen due to a number of conditions such as heart failure, liver cirrhosis, renal failure, low body protein such as malabsorption, etc. Limit your fluid and salt intake until seen by a doctor.
