Need more info: How tall are you? Calculating your BMI helps place your weight in context. Do you have health issues with your heart or kidneys? These can cause you to retain fluid, an unhealthy cause for weight gain. Have your eating habits changed? High-calorie food choices, larger portions, and less physical activity, along with increasing age will make you gain weight. Hope that helps.
