Goals obtained, confusion, and happiness

Well, After I got out of the Obese category....I fell right back into it!! I was fluctuating between 171-173 pounds until 3 days ago when my scale told me something amazing again!!! 165.0 Then 164.0 then 165.2. I'm definitely not complaining.
I'm not sure what's with the fluctuations, but I'm hoping to stay around or under 165 before I leave for work in 12 days. Tomorrow I can only do one workout because I'm going out with friends after work before I leave. I would love to lose another 3 pounds in those 12 days. Then I will be safely under 165. Honestly, I think my fluctuations are my body telling me it needs a rest because I seem to jump back up in weight when I push too hard for too long. Rest days are important, and I definitely need to remember to take them. I get so focused on working harder for longer that I forget that m body is not yet a machine.
I took 3 days off the gym because I was sick, and started insanity and going back to the gym on Monday. My workouts have been good, and I have been sweating a lot :D. My heart rate is even higher than its been, back to where it was when I first started which makes me happy because I hate when I can't get my heart rate up. I've lost 5 or 6 inches in the last month, and I'm finally starting to not feel fat!! That's a pretty awesome feeling.
This may sound strange to some people, but honestly, I don't feel like I'm working at this hard enough most the time. So many people have a very hard time losing weight and they try sooo incredibly hard, and it's not easy for me, but I still eat junk food, drink pop, have ice cream, and pretty much anything else I want. Sure it's generally in moderation, but I'm not trying as hard as a lot of people and I really wish others could have the same success I've had with all their hard work.
