Sometimes metabolic issues may be at play, thyroid, for example. Have these check by your doctor.

In brief: Depends

Hypothyroidism is a big reason.
Other reasons include environmental toxicity, as fat soluble toxins get stored in fat and the body does not like to lose that fat. Some viruses can also promote weight gain. Food sensitivities may also promote inflammation that promotes weight gain. http://drfairchild.blogspot.com/2012/12/proper-thyroid-testing.html.
