Elo gained and lost is determined by whether the system thought your team was better or worse than the other team. You gain more elo when you beat a better team and you lose more when you lose to a worse team. Since matchmaking can't make exact matches one team will always be considered slightly better before the game starts. If you're losing more elo than you gain it means that you're either only winning when expected to or losing when you're not expected to.

Makes sense, but is this a fact? Anything you can back it up with?

idk how to back this up but sometimes i gain like 20+ other times I've lost 15. Just accept it and keep pushing forward. There is only one way to gain rank, and that is to play play play, push push push, kill, kill, kill, murder, murder, kill. The great words of Nunu bot.

riot wants to make building up your elos a task, that way those with true skill are at the top and not those that just got lucky with a few wins.

OH! Now it makes more sense. No wonder winning matches seemed to give me less >.<
