Why am I gaining weight when I make healthier choices?

I've been fat my whole life, I'm big boned and also have a hormonal issue that contributes. I don't expect to be very thin but with the new year I wanted to lose at least a few pounds even if I'll meet be a size small. I found out how many calories I need to be deficit (before I would eat enough where my weight was maintained) I'm working out a little bit more (I have some weights and I'm doing more walking.) And I mainly eat veggies or seafood, I've managed to cut out beef and pork most of the time. Why am I suddenly gaining weight? Before I would bounce between 245/250 now I'm over the 250 mark at 249-252.

    If you've developed muscles that is your answer. Muscle weighs more than body fat. Since your increase in weight is so small, this is likely your case.

    Stop counting calories, and learn to count carbs.... try the ketogenic diet
