I've lost 135 pounds by not counting calories. But to be fair, I do try to stay "calorie aware," meaning that I still check labels and look up menu items for restaurants. I don't want to accidentally eat a 1000+ calorie meal, lol.

At this stage of my journey, I just avoid added sugar, watch my portion sizes (I don't even measure), write down everything I eat, and try to use some common sense. I have issues with anxieties so the less I obsess over numbers, the better.

Of course, everyone's a little different. It took a long time to figure out what works best for me. This is something I can see myself doing for life.
