Did you add exercise to your program? Weight gain when you add exercise is a common (and normal, but temporary) issue many people have had in the past:

Also, are you weighing and measuring your food, or eyeballing your portions? Only 11% of Americans accurately know how much they're eating, and if you're not breaking out the scales and measuring cups, you're not likely to be one of them. :)

I do track my diet and have been eating a LOT better and exercising. That is why I didnt understand the gain. Im hoping that its just water weight that will go away in time...

Vitamins are not going to cause weight gain. Are you tracking your diet, whether here on Spark or elsewhere? If you haven't already done so, set up all your information in Spark (current weight, goal weight, exercise, etc) and let it compute a calorie range for you. Make sure your goals are reasonable so that you end up with a workable calorie range. Then, focus on getting within as many of your ranges as you can every day. If you really hone in on your diet and throw in some strength training and cardio every week, the scale will begin to move in the right direction.

What's in the GNC vitamins that you can't get from an over the counter multi? The one time I went in that store I was shocked at how much they charge for a dolled-up version of a multi-vitamin. They won't hurt you, but your money might be better spent elsewhere, especially if you're on a budget like some of us.
