I think you hit the nail on the head by mentioning the weight loss. That definitely is enough to trigger a missed period but 7 years is a long time.
There are several reasons for a missed period, including an increase in exercise, or change in diet. Since the weight loss have you been getting enough nutrients?
Here's an article on amenorrhea that explains the variety of possible causes:
It's good that you're going to see a doctor, as he/she will be able to more accurately pinpoint the reason and hopefully get this this figured out!
