if you put on thirty pounds in a year, that breaks down to eating 287 cals more than you needed everyday. so those generous portions of oil and frequent baked goods could easily be what made up those extra 300 cals. but you should also notice that it means that you're pretty close to where you want to be, so you don't need to change too much. measuring out your fats and slightly cutting back on them could easily take out half of that number. and measure and track the baked goods. you may find it works better to make mini muffins instead of texas sized muffins and you can have two little ones and be just as satisfied as having the big one. and it may be that you always need to be a little more mindful of those particular items. so while being meticulous with measuring your kale isn't going to do much for you, the oil that you put on it would be worthwhile to track.
and if you do want to keep not skimping, make it your goal to burn more calories. if you start burning 50-100 cals more a day, that takes away between 1/6 and 1/3 of that overage. now as you age that overage is going to creep up a little [about ten cals a day for every year you get older. so next year you would burn about ten cals less a day than you did this year. two years from now it would be 20 cals a day less than this year and so forth].
