Ready to cry :( (vent post)

Now that I'm on a challenge team I weigh in every Wednesday and today I hit my highest non-pregnant. It makes me sad, angry, frustrated, and so many other negative emotions. I also really want to light up!!
Brief backstory: in January I quit smoking and also slacked off on the exercise and food tracking ( was overwhelmed with school). So I expected some weight gain. The in the middle of May I got slightly motivated and started adding back in some sporadic exercise. Over the 6 months that I either did nothing or was sporadic I gained 14 pounds. Not the best but considering I was doing nothing, not the worst either (roughly 1/2 a pound a week average).
Flash forward to today and I have been improving my healthy habits everyday. For the past two weeks I have exercised more than I probably did in the whole six months. I am making healthier food choices (still need to work on it in the evenings) and tracking for the better part of the day (again slacking off in the evenings) and drinking plenty of water. So in short what hasn't improved has stayed the same. And then I get on the scale and poof 3 pounds gained in two weeks!! Grrr!!! So cranky now!!! I know it's a work in progress and it takes time to lose, and all those supportive tips, but really I went backwards!! I want to go have a smoke, a bowl of ice cream, and a handful of diet pills all at the same time (okay so not really just providing a visual for my feelings). Okay rant over, time to move on....
