Why am I gaining weight despite regular exercise and eating a healthy diet

I am 59 years old. I am faithful with getting regular exercise which includes, strength training, cardio using treadmill, elyptical, stair climber and I also attend group fitness classes 2-3 times per week.
My diet most of the time is clean, meaning good basic food, organic as much as possible, fruits and vegetables and complex carbs. I do not eat process foods. I make everything from scratch.
