First, be kind to yourself, we all react to stress and we all fall off our eating plan at some time.
You haven't done anything irreversible.
What works for me or someone else may not work for you. But you can find something that will. When I know I am getting close to the point that I will eat emotionally, I make myself drink a tall glass of water. This slows me down and helps to make me feel full. Then I make myself wait 10 minutes, at least 5 minutes devoted to deep relaxation breathing. This works for me 90% of the time or better. When I still eat, I eat about half of what I would havein the past.
You've taken the biggest step by looking at what set you off. Now look at your options and come up with a plan to deal with frustration in the future. Remember that your boyfriend isn't your only source of support. Good luck.
