In brief: Keep it up

The most common cause of weight gain i see in dieting patients is erroneous food journaling (underestimation of intake or calorie content of food) or overestimation of caloric needs.
If these are not the case, then i might consider some other hormonal conditions, like cushing's disease / hypercortisolism.
