Default STILL holding water after holidays? Any thoughts Lyle?

Took 9 months to diet from 218 (20-25%) to 180-181 (10-12%, can see abs, will post pic if its helpful). Typical calorie level towards the end of this period was 2000 or so with a once per week refeed.

Was 180 on Christmas eve and Christmas morning. Binged on about 7000 calories on Christmas. Shot up to 188. Next 4 days were at 1700. Still only got down to 183 by the 4th day (but waistline at all time low). Binged 12/30 and 12/31 again at 7000 calories or so each day. Weight shot up to 190+ and has incredibly slowly come back down but still high. Every day since then has ranged from 1500-2400 with an average of 1800 or so.

It's basically like I've had to lose that weight all over again. I am still waking up around 183-185 most mornings. This is 3-5lb above my low (which I hit several times pre-holidays) after just 3 days of junk food and about 20 days of strict dieting (along with cardio and lifting of course). Not to mention strength and arm measurements are going down just as if I was dieting past my old lows.

Both skinfold calipers and waistline are both up as well to the same level as when I was 183-185 back in November, so again it's literally as if I've somehow held onto 3-5lb fat, which I realize should be physiologically impossible it's just very frustrating at this point and doesn't make sense to me. I've always been one to bloat a lot but it always goes away quickly too. Now I'm just "fatter" and weaker.

Any thoughts/recommendations?
