That is a great idea to use the American Diabetics Association eating plan. Years ago when I quit smoking and gained at least 30 pounds, I used the Diabetics plan and lost it all. It is a great plan. I had this little booklet that I carried which was very useful.
Good for you making a choice not to become emotional and eat when you ran into your ex. Sounds like you are getting better and better and stronger and stronger. Hang in there!! You can do this!!!!
