you won't know if it will work for you until you try it. if that works better, great. if you do need to go back to tracking, really focus on the long term scale rather than the short term. in other words remember that your body isn't like your bank account where once you put something in you can see where it goes. what fueled you this morning when you woke up wasn't the breakfast you ate, your fuel came from whatever you ate last night. digestion takes several hours and really delays results and linking to said results. add things like salt to the mix and that can further change what sort of water your body retains [adds weight but does a necessary function]. working out is something that further complicates things as what and how much can determine how much water your are retaining to repair the muscles you used in your workout. so what that means is that one day and one weigh in don't mean anything. you need several weigh ins over time to get any idea of what your weight is doing. because it's normal and usual for your body to bobble up and down, vary by up to 5lbs, without you gaining or losing an ounce. most people don't lose one pound, one pound, one pound, half a pound, two pounds, one pound. most people lose three pounds, gain two, down one, up a half, down two like that. and the more often you flip out about the little bobbles, particularly if you try and drastically change things to fix what you perceive as not working, the longer it can take to see results. and that's all the more true the less weight you have to lose. because every time you do something new the results clock resets. and it can take 4-6 weeks to see results.
as far as you eating when everyone else does [even if you already ate], remember that you keep your schedule and they keep their schedule. every time your coworkers go to the bathroom you don't join them, do you? you're not calling them in the morning to make sure that you're showering at the same time, right? eating is just the same, you do it when you need to and that's your schedule that you should try to stick to. because you can't stick to other people's schedules or you would be eating all the time because odds are at least someone you know is eating at most times.
