I track as much as possible, but there are occasions when I just put "Lots" on my spreadsheet and start again the following day.
Are you able to suggest to work that a healthier food option be included?

I try to track even if I feel like I overdid it. For me, it's good to see how much damage I did so that I can remember that the next time. I also work in an environment where the food choices are not great. I keep a lunchbox full of good choices so that if I'm tempted by snacks someone brings in, I can grab an apple or a fruit and nut bar. It's really hard to begin with, but I have been really open with my co-workers and they have been respectful for the most part and even order healthier items when lunch is ordered in.

I would probably try and track it, myself...
Just so I could use it as a "point of reference" if for no other reason. Just so I could maybe compare this day to the next "office party" and see if I do better the next time?
That said... if it is really a jumble and impossible to guesstimate, just chalk it up to "a bad day" and start again tomorrow.

I'm not sure what anyone else would say, but I do try to track what I ate, even if I overdo or the food's not easy to track. I use the search feature a lot and try to get close if I don't know the nutrition info for sure. It helps me, I would feel like my reports would be off if I didn't track, but I am a bit OCD :)

There was a retirement party at work today and I just went a little nuts! I'm not sure how to track all the crap I ate or just start fresh tomorrow. The place I work is part of my weight problem. I have a desk job and we get detail lunches brought in sometimes 3 times a week. We have a very small lunchroom so I eat at my desk. Four and a half years of eating pizza, pasta, sandwiches, fried chicken, etc. has taken a toll on my weight but I digress. Should I just start fresh tomorrow or try to track what I ate at lunch?
