For Those Who Can Not Calorie Count

To those unable to count calories:
Do not be ashamed because I have been there. People rave that counting calories is the best way to lose weight and I hope it is...for them. I have friends that see wonderful results and it makes me so happy.
But for me, counting calories became a pathway leading me to a relationship with food that I would not survive. I would look at that total calorie number I would be given that day and wonder how far under I can manage to get. And after that day, if I can get lower then the day before. Could I cut my required calorie intake in half?
Guilty work outs came when calorie counts became to high. I'd go out to dinner with friends, come home and do "guilty sit-ups" to try and take away some calories. My body convinced itself that if it eats a certain thing (whatever my brain decided is too much), I would feel nauseous. Calories would be the only thing on my mind as my body forced itself survive on minimal.

Calorie Counting led me to a relationship with food that is far from healthy.

So I stopped.

And I am so much healthier because of it.

Now to be healthy I eat less, because lets be real, we are all eating way to much. I eat fresh, and try and avoid the middle sections of the grocery store. I work out because I want to, not because I enjoyed myself at a restaurant with my boyfriend. I cook amazing food and try to limit my how much cheese and sauce I use.
But I still love cheese and sauce... so I add them, because I like to eat, and I like to cook, and I know that working out and eating right will give me results.
Eating right and being healthy does not have to revolve around numbers and limitations. Eating right revolves around bright colors and favorite flavors, and eating something that makes you feel amazing, not something that leaves you feeling sick.
Being unable to count calories will not stop you from being healthy! Go against the norm and find your own healthy lifestyle and just know, if you are happy with you, then it is working.

These are the sort of things I like reading! Thank you, @LizArnone. I appreciate your honesty. We all need to remember that how we define healthy can be much different from what the media tells us what healthy is. There's very little productivity in obsessing over the amount calories you consume. And health is more than just that number on the scale, or the calorie content on a nutrition label.
@alywoah thanks so much! it really is just all about finding what works for you and your healthy lifestyle and then just going for it! my friend has been seeing so much success with counting calories and I have seen a lot of success without counting so its just a matter of figuring it all out haha
@LizArnone Thanks for posting this. It has opened my mind to retry counting my calories. I gave up before becauae i couldn't do it but you have me not wanting to give up anymore. And i love your honesty. keep posting things like this!

How Motivational videos Help Students To Overcome the Frustration Barrier
Frustration is supposed to be an open door. Frustration is needed and it comes from fear. And it teaches us everything we need to do it again and do it better. We all have some fear within us. Whether it is the fear to pass the exam or to get a job or so on. The fear gets a form of frustration sometimes, at that time we need a person who consoles us or who gives us a motivation to overcome the frustration barrier within ourselves. Nowadays life is so busy as a bee that no one has much time for others to help in that situation or anything else. At that time, we need some motivation, which we all have within us but it’s not enough for us to motivate through ourselves. In India, most of the students prefer Hindi as a medium for speaking and writing. So, Motivational Videos in Hindi motivate them not only for their concrete carrier but to structure themselves as a good human being. Stay In Long Run Students feel this frustration barrier from time to time because of the competition they face. They need to be motivated from time to time. So they should watch some motivational videos, which not only keeps them in the long run but also they stay highly determined and help them stay high in moral.

They stimulate our sense organs to raise our pride and dedication towards work and create a feeling to do the work we are failing in. We face many problems in our running life. But we are not meant to give-up, our human nature taught us to fight and solve the problem. And by these methods, we are certainly going to beat the frustration barrier and move forward in life. Reading motivational books are also helpful if you are looking for an alternative.
What Has BTS Taught You
Hello fam! I can across this cool edit. These are not my own, but I wanted to share. @VeronicaArtino and I were having a conversation about " why we look up to BTS or what we have learned from them." These edits definitely sum up what I have learned from BTS. Honestly my key things are you are never too young to be wise. Love myself and loving myself is not selfish. Love those who support you and even your haters. You reap what you sow. If you plant seeds of success and water them with hard work and dedication you will get what you deserve. Focus on being the best version of myself, screw comparing myself to others. COMMENT BELOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM BTS!

Benefits of Natural Medicine: Sea moss, Bladderwrack, Tumeric, Maca, and Chasteberry
Hello fam! I've been making adjustments to my lifestyle so I can have a healthier life. One big thing that I do is utilize natural alternatives to my healthcare regimen. I take vitamins and use natural ways to regulate my hormones levels since I do have POCS. I know longer have cysts but I do have the other issues as in insulin resistance, over weight, and irregular hormone levels. Again I'm not a doctor so make sure you always consult with your doctor before doing anything. I'm just sharing some things I do that has helped me greatly! I'm a texture person I just add this to my scrambled eggs. This does have a salty sea taste since it is from the ocean. I know people who purchase the actual algae and soak in hot water to drink as a tea. I purchased my sea moss gel from a legit herbal person who also can mix whatever other vitamins or herb in your batch. Tumeric When using this try to get organic in the powder form. My mom even used this for inflammation. When ingesting this make sure to add Black pepper to activate this. Basically, no use taking this if you don't add the Black pepper. The Black pepper allows our body to absorb the tumeric. I just sprinkle on food. It does stain so be careful. I use these both to regulate my hormones and this stuff is golden! I do not have the issues I had with my POCS once I changed to taking these two together. I actual purchased these in liquid form recently and love it. However, you can purchase the maca in powder form and both in supplement form.
