Default Ok, I'm lost! HELP!

I joined the site on January 16, and weighed 213. When I started my journey on Dec 28, I weighed 219. On January 29 I weighed 208. I weighed myself this morning and I am back to 212. The only change I have made is I bought an exercise bike and I ride 20 minutes after dinner. My calories are 1500-1800 a day. I simply do not understand how I can be gaining weight! I am 46 y/o male 6' 0" tall. My carbs are now around 45%, fat at 35% and protein at 19%. I drink about 10 8 oz glasses of water per day. What could be causing me to gain weight?

Three years ago my wife and I did weight watchers. Same calorie level, only all I did then was walk a mile at lunch, and a mile after dinner. I lost 25 lbs in 2 months. So here I am exercising way more and gaining weight. It defies logic. Any clues as to why? Do I need to visit my doctor and see if I have an underlying health issue that is causing this?
