Are you working out at the same intensity? As you lose weight, it takes less energy to do the same amount of exercise, so it's important to increase intensity or time or both. Also, make sure you're measuring rather than eyeballing food quantities. It's surprising how easy it is to get in an additional 100 or more calories without being aware.
I agree that a doctor's visit may be in order. If all checks out well, then you may want to look at your calories. I know if I eat below or above my calories, the weight starts creeping. I also need my daily walk, no matter how fast or slow it may be, everyday. Make sure you are in your range for protein and carbs, too. I know if I'm not in my range, I tend to feel sluggish.
Some days are just tough, but I find tracking daily and posting on the message boards, blogs, and sparkteams helps a lot.
I agree with Linda. Often times your sorts of symptoms indicate problems with the thyroid and it is an easy fix. Until then, today write down one thing you are blessed with. Tomorrow write two, the next day, three, then four, then three, then two, then one every day. I keep a blessing calendar next to my computer.
Sounds to me like you just need more practice making your lifestyle routine and habit rather than a diet you can't stick with. Start the day with a healthy breakfast! Then think about everything you put in your mouth. It does become habit eventually! I find it helps to concentrate on clean foods and a brisk walk. if you want it bad enough!

We all go through phases like that. You can't live for any length of time without having ups and downs. In school at least we had semester breaks, yet with weight control it's every day.
This is why I track religiously. I may not level my cups off all the time, but I have a pretty good grasp of quantity and jot it down. Usually I plan in advance and check it off, sometimes I scribble as I go. Somehow seeing it in blue and white gives it substance. I find that it is more important now while maintaining.
Write it down. When you feel better you'll know where you stand and have a better idea of where to go next.

Hi Barbie I think all of us from time to time lose our Mojo Have you gone to the doctor to see if its a medical thing why you have no energy? Are you under more stress Stress completely drains me. If doctor tells you all is well then maybe you are just bored with your routine, have you shaken things up a bit to make it more interesting? you have in the past and this time is no different Hang in there.

I feel like I am slipping for the past month I have been gaining slowly.. I weigh myself everyday..but for some reason I feel tired not that hype that I used to have do not care again now that is dangerous for me.. I try to exercise then I feel tired and I stop .. have stopped organizing.. need a push from somebody just to do anything... so I hate to wine but I need that push to get that sparkle again.. I have lost already 30 pounds but gaining it back.. I need that scale to go down not up...
Taking one day at a time. I know that I can do it.
