Welcome to the forum.
What amount of calories are you eating, and how did you arrive at this number?

This may be a bit if a shot in the dark, but if you are wheelchair bound, you may have some body mass that is a bit atrophied/less active due to nerve injury, etc.
If your calorie intake is based on total body weight, but some of your body weight is not using as many calories as expected, try getting a more accurate body composition number (lean body mass vs. fat%) and use that as a basis for your calorie estimate.
More simply, just reduce your calories by 5-10% for a few weeks at a time until you hit a good maintenance number.
Also, even though a gram of protein and a gram of carbs have the same calories, the carbs can cause an insulin response which has a hormonal effect that can prompt fat storage whereas protein does not.

Hope that helps. Just take a read through his logs and you'll get a lot of information but the piece I highlighted above is worth considering when you are working out your calorie intake in relation to your weight.
