I start a new job in the new year and have been spending a day a week at the new place. Today one of my new colleagues brought mince pies in for the office. I didn't really want one but it was such a nice gesture I didn't want to refuse.

It didn't derail me. I do think I'm over eating slightly at the moment though.

Sounds exciting, but change can be stressful!

It certainly can Smile but staying where I am was causing me stress and unhappiness. I've been working at the new place one day a week and whilst it has a lot more challenges the team are supportive and understand the issues.

Congratulations on what sounds like a better atmosphere. Let’s hope the pies are a holiday thing.

I think they were, if not I'll have to find a way to politely decline Smile

You were certainly right to have the mince pie, I think. It was a pie of importance! Bonding with a new colleague. I’m sure Reinhardt would have had the pie. Smile

If they offer more pies....well you can cross that bridge when you come to it...
Just don’t do what I’ve been doing, with one very kind ‘feeder’ friend. She gives me chocolate biscuits and I hide them in my handbag, then forget about them. This is very bad when combined with my other habit, keeping a bottle of water with a loose lid in my handbag. A while ago I found my keys encrusted in a sort of pastry.

Anyway, I’m delighted to hear about your new post, and wish you all the best! They are lucky to have you.

It's been a stressful few weeks in the run up towards Christmas, I have served my notice period at work, had a family meal where my 21 year old nephew announced his girlfriend is pregnant, not planned and my sister turned on me over something and nothing.

Whilst I was in the wrong for which I immediately apologised, her reaction was way over the top and very upsetting when I consider all I did this year to support her through her second divorce. She was determined to have a fight over it. Hey ho we live and learn.

My eating has had little structure but I'm not too worried but I think I'll make an effort for a nos day today.

Oh boy, I’m so sorry you’re having a stressful time. Sounds like your sister is trying to take out her frustrations on you. I hope she rethinks her reaction and appreciates all you e done for her. But if not make sure you take care of you.

Ps thanks for all your support on my thread & hope today goes well for you. 💜

I know this is Soprano's thread, but the Octavia "pastry key" story had me laugh out loud!

Ugh about the sister stuff. It sounds like you, very wisely, understand that her reaction is all about her, really, and not about you.

My eating has been breaking records this week and I'm sort of stumbling my way back to structure myself today - here's to both of us finding moderation today and tomorrow.

Thanks for the support ladies, it is really appreciated

I didn't quite manage a full nos day but ate significantly less and I was hungry when I did eat.

I skipped breakfast as I wasn't hungry.

My son bought me lunch whilst we were shopping and as a treat included a cake without asking so I ate half out of politeness.

As dinner was going to be late the family had something to eat at 4 but again as I wasn't hungry I abstained. When we did eat it was buffet style and I was relaxed about the plate but no sweet stuff Smile

Let's try again today

Sounds like you’ve had a good day, Soprano. I too have managed to be moderate today. It’s time, isn’t it? The N days call. And yet, we approach the weekend. A little challenge for us all. I’m hoping to do without sweets and snacks - for once I don’t need to release of the weekend. But we shall see.

Sorry to hear about your sister getting on to you like that. So upsetting.

Btw, I have a new handbag... Laughing

Happy New Nos year everyone and thanks for your support last year.

I'm not sure I'm entirely back in the Nos groove yet and haven't stepped on the scales, I'll save that joy for Friday!

I started my new job which I'm sure I will love but am feeling very stressed and overwhelmed by all that needs doing. This is affecting my sleep but hopefully things will settle down.

Happy New Year and new job, Soprano. What kind of work do you do?

You'll find your No S groove again. Just keep going.

Thanks oolala, I'm a finance manager in a hospice.

Yesterday was a typical S day, breakfast, piece of cake late afternoon and dinner which was 2 courses with a couple of chocs Smile

I weighed today and from my lowest weight in November I've gained just under 2lbs. My scales weigh down to a 10th of a pound Smile

I'm pleased with that as I did throw the nos rules out if the window for the latter half of December until after New year.

I ate more sweet stuff than normal but not in a binge like fashion. Most days were 2 or 3 meals of normal portions except Christmas dinner. But often 2 courses.

Back to normal now!

And the holiday "weigh-in" is officially behind you - so happy for you to have pretty much maintained over the holidays.
