Sure wish I could bottle this feeling!

Weigh in Monday finally showed a loss!! woohoo!!
Top that off with my second week of calorie counting every day, drinking at least 8 classes of water daily and exercising and I'm feeling pretty darn good :)
I have not binged in awhile and even when I have gotten upset (always a trigger for me) I haven't binged or immediately went off plan for a day to eat junk. Maybe I'm learning how to do this??
I'm still eating foods I want, just smaller portions and am counting the calories and actually asking myself if I really want them or not.
DS and I went out to dinner the other night, to one of my favorites a mexican restaurants, and I did order what I wanted but only ate half to three quarters of it and didn't eat near the number of chips and cheese dip I would have in the past and of course had water with it. So I count that as another success.
Haven't had a pop since last week and couldn't even finish that b/c it seemed to sweet.
Needless to say, for the most part, I've been in a great mood and have wanted to do more than sit on the couch all evening. Body can't quite keep up with the spirit and be as active as I feel like it right now so still spend more time sitting then I want but that's okay...I'll get there!!
Typing this out so that when I'm wanting to give up or thinking I'm not worth it or that I'm not actually making progress I have this to read as a reminder.
Note to myself:
MICHELLE YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT!
IT PAYS OFF IN MORE THEN THE SCALE~DON'T FOCUS ONLY ON THAT~
EAT HEALTHY~STAY ACTIVE~DRINK WATER AND YOU WILL FEEL BETTER FOR IT!!
REMEMBER HOW MUCH BETTER THOSE THINGS MAKE YOU FEEL
REMEMBER HOW BLESSED YOUR LIFE IS AND BE THANKFUL FOR IT!
MAKE THE MOST OF IT!
