Muscle soreness (not pain) is definitely the best sign for me.

I'm with you, Achilles_Dallas. I know it's been a great workout if I get a "runner's high" towards the end (despite my inability to run!) of my workout. I love that feeling - I end up thinking that I'm healthy and strong and capable of just about anything.

All from exercising. :)

When I've put full intensity into it, I'm drained physically, but starting to get that second wind that comes at the end... and then later I feel very alert and energized, almost bouncing off the walls. Yes, that is a good workout for me.

I've backslidden... I reached my goal and was now maintaining, but now I need to lose 10 pounds and firm up.

I know I have had a great workout when I feel like jelly afterwards!
I love the feeling of knowing I pushed myself to my limit.

When I'm able to move up the weight I'm lifting I always feel a great deal of accomplishment. I love the pump I get from weight training.

had a great workout?

As for me, if I have energy at all through the workout and still feel good at the end. I love that feeling.
