86 days to go

Apparently being on the last day of my period last month was not a good time to weigh in. I went back yesterday, and it's official - I'm down 5 pounds from LAST FRIDAY and 10 pounds overall.
Inches - I've lost 1/2 inch on my hips since my last weigh in.
I've started the cardio attack, and cut down on the lifting. I'm lifting no more than twice a week. This afternoon during lunch I did 1/2 hour of the weight circuit, and some walking lunges and pushups. Yesterday I did 15 minutes on the bike, 20 minutes elliptical, and 30 minutes on the treadmill. I definitely feel different when I add the extra cardio and take away the weights. I feel lighter the next day.
Now for the gross (and really cool part) POOP:
In February, a series of 3 colonics did me really well. About mid march, I started eating not so great, and I got clogged up. I was regularly using oxy powder, and it seemed to help, but I'd still feel clogged up.
Since last Friday, when I had the horrible weigh-in and crying jag, I've been really good about eating one serving, and not eating too much at a time. Really good. And I've had much less alcohol.
Since my weigh in last night, I've pooped a record of like 5 times, and I'm CLEANED OUT!!!! I mean, I think I can add a pound to my weight loss, because since the weigh in I've sure been going! I've never felt really regular - but I haven't taken any oxy powder at all, just a lot of cardio, and salad, and few carbs. Last night for dinner I had chicken, broccoli, and peanut sauce stirfry (yummy) but I did not have a second serving, and I ate slowly. I also drank just water.
So I think by keeping my portions to normal human portions :) and keeping the carbs to a minimum, I might be doing my body a real favor, and it seems to be returning the favor.
Today I missed breakfast, I usually have yogurt at work, but it's crazy getting all the radio spots ready for the end of the month, beginning of next month. So after lunch, I had a whole salad, rather than the 1/2 salad I've been having, and I had dressing. I also ate a breadstick. I'm feeling full, and I know I should have eaten this morning so as not to feel so ravenous at lunch. But I'm going straight home after work, what a great reward, and maybe I'll do some yoga.
I've coerced the fiance into going on a run with me today too.
Yeah, I'm happy. I'm happy that I have 86 days to go, and I feel like I know what I need to do. Alcohol is the devil. Diet pepsi is also the devil, but at one a day or less, I think I'll focus on making alcohol a treat, rather than a daily dose of empty calories. I'm happy I have worked this hard and made some progress.
I told my sister today, I feel like if the wedding was today, I'd feel OK about wearing my dress. But the fact that I've done a lot of work and come such a long way learning some new habits empowers me to look forward to the last 2.5 months with the knowledge that I can do it, I can slim down. Size 12 goodbye! Size 8 here I come. I swear.
