Thank you both! Imogen, that’s good to know that someone else is in the same place 🙌. Also that not everyone is bored reading this. I’m still breastfeeding so no caffeine for me but music is such a good idea - I massively underuse music. I might just about have made it today. The next two day...

It’s three hours into the first day and all I want to do is to stuff my face. We had 4 nightfeeds of the littlest one last night and a 5am wake up of the DD1 thanks to daylight saving. When I am tired I find it especially hard to stay strong and not give into unlimited chocolate and other sugary t...

Wow there is so much going on here and I had lots of excuses not to follow NoS - and it seems I took them all. I’m on it again as of today as I am ballooning. I know it will be a real struggle in the first week but I just need to do it now. Every time I drop off the check in is when I stop doing i...

I agree that the timing needs to be right. I gave up caffeine 3years ago when trying to get pregnant and the withdrawal was crazy. But I never went back on it and my husband gave it up with me and now he has some about twice a month when he needs and extra kick - he says that is probably how we are ...

Auto, I bet you are an amazing teacher! Weirdly, I don’t remember the teachers with the easy classes as great but the ones that ask for a lot of work but were fair and took an interest in us as people.

I have to catch up on your thread to find out how your month of no alcohol went! I missed it.

Thank you, it was! Since coming back things have been crazy. DD1 started nursery and promptly made the whole family ill and I had one solid red week 🙈 just too busy with two ill kids and not feeling good myself either.

Hello! I’m back from our vacation and had a successful N day yesterday. In fact I left some of my dinner as the portion - within NoS aka on a plate - was ridiculous. I loved our vacation and ate what I wanted but we also racked up lots of walked kilometers and I didn’t gain anything. Thank you f...

So there isn’t a buy nothing group in my area but I have started my own group with friends for now.
We are getting rid of loads and the house is still full of stuff. Considering something much more radical but am not quite there yet.

Thank you auto! I meant that despite a huge dinner I still had an empty stomach and was awake for ages. Today is not a great start. I have mastitis and need to get medicines for it but feeling so sad for myself (🙈) that I just want chocolate. It doesn’t help that there is no proper breakfast in...

I had a bizarrely huge dinner that actually put me off visually and still needed a hot chocolate to get me through last night and also was awake until 2am with an empty stomach. The thing is that I wasn’t massively hungry but I was full of energy. I often find that when dinners are of the lighter ...
