I'm making a giant pumpkin pie, boasting 1kg of pumpkin, I'm going to freeze half (I hope pumpkin pie defrosts okay??!)
It's not exactly low cal but it's a lot better than cake in terms of the fact it's packed full of vegginess.

BigRed - I think I remember that thread. Today my supply seems to be better, so I'm guessing my calories were just plain too low. I hadn't thought that I was too low but clearly I was. I'm going to increase my calories permanently but I still want to find the level where I lose weight without affecting supply. Could take a while to get that right.
wikidwitch - Well done on resisting ice cream Sounds like you're doing well, keep it up.
SoThisIsLove - I'm lucky, I'm not really a fan of Oreos so that's not a problem for me haha. I find another good trick is to have the chewy sugarfree mint lollies. One of those in the evening stops me from wanting to snack and still gives me that sweetness that I'm craving.
angelini - Way to go! 1.1kg is fantastic!!!
AFM - As I said earlier, looks like the lack of calories is the most likely culprit for my reduced milk supply, because my supply seems to have improved overnight. It's frustrating, because I was losing weight nicely and was happy with the results. That being said I'm not willing to risk my supply drying up entirely so I'll just have to suck it up and keep eating more.
I had a gain of 700g overnight () but I think it was because we had home made pizzas for dinner with olives and feta. Salt overload! I'm hoping that drinking plenty of water today sees a good drop tomorrow and that it's all fluid retention.
I did have a piece of cake at lunch time and yoghurt for dessert that I didn't really need but it was all in the interests of increasing my supply I swear! And it seemed to do the job. Now I just have to find the right balance to keep losing weight and not risk my supply. If that means only losing 100-200g a week I'll have to take that one on the chin.
