Weight loss troubleshooting

Hey all. First time asking a question here. 

I've toyed with Paleo over the course of the last 9 months and done two full rounds of the Whole30 program, which I love and is great for my body (I'm planning a third round for the end of November, that's how much I love how it makes me feel). After the first round I went back to SAD eating, but after the second round in July I've been almost entirely paleo and I feel great. I've started working out like never before, running 4 days a week (running! I've never run before!) and doing power yoga a couple times a week as well.

My question relates to weight loss and how to keep it up… I'm a 24 year old female and I'm 5'4''. I started at the beginning of July at a record high of 162 lbs and when I weighed in this week I was at 144 lbs. My ending goal weight is 120 lbs and I'd like to be there by the end of this year, which would necessesitate a weight loss of slightly less than 1.5 lbs/week, which I feel is super reasonable and attainable.

I was wondering if I posted a few sample days of meal logs if anyone could give me some feedback on what I could optimize or tweak to help me with my goals? I KNOW one thing I need to do is limit my alcohol intake further, but other than that? Below are a few sample days… if anybody has any ideas or input I would really appreciate it as I'm very motivated and open to advice!
