I agree, just before I improve about 150 points or so, I tend to play really bad for a few days and then suddenly play better, its a cycle....
You go up, a little down, a little down and up, and repeat.
Sounds stupid, and it is, but its true. Atleast for me.
I played on playchess for a few months and that is exactly how my rating kept changing, you get frustrated about loosing and then when your relaxed again and can concentrate, you play better and improve.
Dont be too concerned about loosing, just find out whats going wrong.
Im also in such a state right now, I keep loosing against 1300 players even though I am about a 1400 player.
