Bloating/Water Retention

I am recovering from a restrictive eating disorder. I dropped from 145 to 120 pounds. I began refeeding in January and lifting weights 4 times a week. I have now restored to 155 pounds, and feel like I continue to gain weight. I also have constant water retention. Is this normal to still be so bloated even once I'm restored and even past my initial weight? I'm not sure if the distension in my stomach is weight gain or bloating. Anyone experience something similar or know what could be going on? I have attached a picture of what my stomach looks like naturally (no pushing out).
