Brief Answer:
Exercise and investigations

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Increase in weight and decreased menstrual blood flow could be due to hormonal disturbances in the body like hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia . However, in these conditions, most of the times the menstrual cycle also becomes irregular.Menstrual blood flow is also decreased in uterine tuberculosis, but in this usually there is weight loss and decrease in apetite.
Loosing fat on belly can be achieved by yoga, exercises to tone up the abdominal muscles or swimming. Running and jogging do decrease the weight, but do not help very much in reducing the tummy. Even 15-20 minutes of regular exercise daily can help you in this.
I would suggest you to get your thyroid profile and prolactin levels checked,get a pelvic ultrasound, X ray of chest and Mantoux test to rule out tuberculosis.
If everything is normal, then there is no reason to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
