Default Can stopping dieting depress you?

As part of my diet this time I am going to do sort of a reverse step diet. To avoid my body getting used to my dieting and going into "starvation mode" I will stop after a certain amount of weight... eat more (not enough to gain) and then start again.

I did that yesterday. This is the first time I have ever stopped a diet by my own will and not "falling" off the diet into a pile of candy.

And I have been in a crazy pissy mood all day and yesterday. I won't have the "looking forward" to losing weight but I also won't have the "pile of eating with abandon".

Anyone else ever feel depressed at maintenance.
