Really anyone can swim, just start off shallow and work your way down. Defiantly do not jump right in, you don't want to drown. Just work on it and soon you'll be able to. I really advice just starting in the shallow end first though.

It doesn't really matter how big you are, as far as you can move your arms and legs (which I'd think someone your size is able to do perfectly), you can swim.

Try to swim in a shallow place to see if you can or not.

Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Oops! That's boxing. Water babies never forget how to swim irrespective of age/weight. They just do, like Shamu. Enjoy!

Are you swimming alone? I think no one teach you, maybe you need a teacher.

if its muscle that you gained then you may find your buoyancy to be set a little lower in the water. that just means that you may have to strengthen your kick a little more to get your body with the surface. if its more fat that you have gained you will most likely experience being more buoyant in the water and you may have to work on your balance more. but if you have previously been able to swim well then you should be able to learn all of this pretty fast. I wouldn't worry too much about it, just relax and you'll start to remember how to swim again. take your time. good luck!
