Hi Rose, it is possible that your weight gain is hormonal , it would possibly be a good idea to have bloodwork done or hormone level checks.
However, there are also other factors such as the impact of dieting by itself. Just the stress of dieting can cause a release of Cortisol which is known to cause weight gain. Dieting can change your body composition (and the faster you lose weight the more pronounced that can be) so that you can diet yourself fatter and fatter with each ensuing diet.
