are you still tracking your intake? You may be taking in more calories than you realize. My weight goes up when I'm not tracking. What a normal day's menu look like for you?

it's not likely that you're not eating enough. If your calories are OK, maybe there is something medical going on.

btw - gaining weight in year 3 is unfortunately very common. But you can stop it by really clamping down.

Yes year 3 weight gain very common. The sleeve effect wears off somewhere between year 2 and 3.

Agree with suggestion to track your intake to see what you are really eating in terms of calories now.

So your BMR is very low now after all the weight loss. BMR is the base of calories your body burns in a day without any workouts for example just from sitting around. My BMR is 1200 calories. It's super low. So if I eat 1300 calories in one day. I'm going to gain about a pound in a month from to many calories. Thays why you should really be walking atleast 10 thousand steps a day and eating at your BMR to loose weight.

walking is not going to cut it if you want to drive the number down. You can maintain with calorie control and that will be a smaller number than you may realize.

If you want to reduce weight you need to increase muscle mass. hit the weights. less cardio more weight lifting.

More muscle mass equals more calorie burn each day. making it easier to reach your goal.

This doesn't have to be a gym. push ups - pull ups - leg lifts - small set of barbells

just use at least every other day and make it part of your routine

You can reach your goal but remember your body adapts to everything you do and gets more efficient so you have to keep changing what you put yourself thru every few months or the effect will decrease.

good luck
