In brief: Food diary

The best way to look at your diet for "mistakes" is with a food diary.
It is usually portion size or snacking. Sometimes, it is one food item, eg i eat way too many cashews. A food diary can help you identify these issues. Plus, exercise a little more. The goal should be 0.5# lost/week. That's only 250 less calories/day. You can do it.
