I'm really struggling so if anyone else is in the same boat it would be good to motivate each other and share tips.

I've been trying to stick to 1,800 calories a day which should be loads (I'm 5ft 6 and fairly active) but feel constantly starving and not losing any weight at all!

I am, although my baby is on solids and so I’m less constantly ravenous. Lost a stone back at the start of the year but put 9 pounds back on. Now lost that 9 pounds over the last 2 weeks by using noom. It’s basically calorie restriction - eating between 1200 and 1400 a day. After about the first 3 days (I was mainlining sugary stuff so think I had withdrawal symptoms!) I’m not really hungry. At the start of the year though I remember being ravenous! How old is your baby?

Me! Have a stone of baby weight to lose. Baby is 14 weeks but don't want any reduced supply
