In brief: Extra weight

Time to reevaluate your diet and exercise plan.
Include an evaluation of how much carbohydrates and fat you are eating. Switch to nonfat milk, avoid cheese, focus on green vegetables such as broccoli, avocado, brussels sprouts, carrots, less carbs. Increase your exercise and evaluate calories you are burning. Try a fitbit. Do a pregnancy test, get thyroid/labs & See MD for full workup. Good luck.
