how to lose weight when you don’t want to actively lose weight

Did you read the title of my blog and go, huh??!
I have recently become very aware of my double chin in pictures. Part of me hates it and the other part of me questions, but why do I hate it?
The same goes for the rest of my body. I know I’ve gained weight but I refuse to go on a scale. I don’t look at myself with any hate but I also am panicking about wearing a dress for a holiday work party.
But, I no longer want to be that girl who is annoying about losing weight. I never realized it until I stopped counting every step, every gram, every calorie, every pound, just how awful it is to be around someone who is consumed by weight loss. Now when I run into someone who only talks about their steps or macros, I realize how I came across and how people rarely got to know the other awesome parts about me. All I cared about was the number on the scale and wanted everyone to know it; as if, it meant even though I was overweight I was trying and they should like me.
So, I want to lose a few lbs without actively and constantly focusing on it. I have been following Jordan Syatt on Instagram and his argument is consistent calorie deficient is all you need. I do not want to weigh my food so I am going to start roughly counting calories. I’m not going for perfection just more awareness. Oh, and way more veggies!
