I can feel the control!

Seriously, I feel it. I am making choices not to touch foods. I made cookies the other day and there are still several sitting in the cookie jar. I have had a bite of one and gave the rest to dh.

I have candy surrounding me at work and still haven't touched the stuff. I went out to eat the other day and made my choices and then worked around them.

I love that feeling. I love knowing that the food around me doesn't control me. I don't think about it all the time and I don't have to reach for it if I am having a hard time. I was waiting a long time to have this feeling back.

Now, how do I keep it? I think part of it is that I am happy but also, I am feeling pretty good about me and my weight loss. It really helps that I don't have to worry about things going into my mouth b/c I don't feel that initial urge.

What part of a diet/healthy life style makes you feel like you are "getting there?" (besides the scale going down.) Just curious?
