Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

You gained 18 pounds inside a very short time and you happen to know the cause behind it. Eating and drinking should not be for fun, Please don't live for food, but eat food to live.
It is quite natural indent forms when you press any flabby and loose muscles. Understand the structure of muscles and you will understand why this happens. Don't worry about it but reduce weight, exercise and be happy.
Good luck.
