What is your eating plan? You say that you're on your 'own diet' but you're gaining weight, so obviously something is wrong. the food choices are wrong.
Try eliminating the fast food or processed foods and eat real natural veggies and meats. Remove the sugars and the weight loss will follow.

If you're looking for advise.... Start w/ a plan. Decide what you are going to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner for next week. Make a menu, create a grocery list, and go shopping. You will find it easier to eat less calories, eat more nutritious foods, less sodium, and lose weight if you prepare your own meals. You need to get in the habit of planning and preparing. A few hours on the weekend can save you tons of calories, time and money during the week. Look for recipes online, try new foods, buy frozen veggies if you don't have time to prepare and cook fresh. Get rid of the wings, skip Panera bread... You will find it hard to lose weight eating that.
Lifestyle change... that's what it is about. Form new habits. What you eat should be a priority. Then figure out how to move more during your day - exercise or just move more. Limit couch time. Walk for 15 minutes. Whatever you can manage. Once you start seeing progress, motivation will help lead you to increase your activity level.
Start NOW!

KEEP CRACKING and STAY STRONG! I feel your pain. Being a competitive physique athlete I can go on very long (12-20 weeks) diets with no variance from my macros and cals, but sometimes after a competition I will struggle for a week or 2 get back to normalcy. We all have these struggles. Don't even think of it as a day to day battle. Think of it as "MEAL TO MEAL". If you sleep, do'nt sweat it. Jump right back on the next meal. NOT THE NEXT DAY! You'll get there! Find something to keep your mind busy!

Very good keep it up. Always try healthy, filling snack, such as an apple and some other fruits. Smart snacking will assist you to lose weight. Eat Whole grains and fruits and veggies give nutrients that recover your health and decrease disease-risk and help you lose weight.
