Underweight to healthy weight

Hello, I'm new here. I wanted to introduce myself, what I'm going through and find friends to support me or perhaps people even going through something similar.
I have always been skinny but looking back at photos I looked healthier before and didn't look as skinny. I went through stress of parents getting divorced, lifestyle changes, I suffered with IBS for a while and all of this affected my weight. Since then I haven't been able to put weight back on and it is something I'm self conscious of because people seem to assume I don't eat. I have decided to download this app to keep track of how many calories I eat a day to try and put on about 0.25kg per week. I'm surprised yesterday I hit the target of calories super easy, it's only my first day but I'm already worried that I'm regularly eating more calories than I need but not putting on weight, I guess I'll have to wait and see atleast how my first week goes.
So anyway I am a 23 year old female, height is 161cm and I weigh 46kg, my goal is to get to atleast 52 but preferably 54 or 55. My goal is to consume about 2000 calories per day 👍🏻
Sorry for babbling on a bit haha I would love to find people going through a similar situation so we can support each other 😊 also any tips/advice is more than welcome!

    Hiiii! I just started using this app yesterday and it seems that it will help me with my goals! I’m 32 years old and have been lifting (with the guidance of a trainer) for almost 6 months! I’ve gained 8-9 pounds since I started training (i was 92 lbs) and now I range from 100 to 101! Feels like I’ve truly plateaued, so I’m really excited to use this app! My target is 110 lbs. cheers to us!

    I keep my weight up with protein, carbs and weight lifting. Last summer 58kg and right now 64 kg.
    I'm 1.76 cm and have always had a lean build. Make sure you eat well and gain some muscle
