Beginning Runner with ACL injury looking for advice

I'm just looking around for some feedback/second opinions. 

Just starting to get back into running. I've been running for about a month now, starting very slow and building up. Right now I'm running 2 5ks a week plus a little extra. 

I tore my ACl about four years ago and suffered a botched reconstructive surgery so the graft had to be removed. Currently operating without an ACL. 

I'm a little concerned that because of these ACL issues, I'm a bit heavy to be running? I'm 22, 5'5 and 146 lbs. Definitely not running a ton, but just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat. 

Started running to get back in shape and drop those pesky 16 lbs  

any suggestions or feedback? 

Thank you!!
