Save any wrappers during binge. Note unwrapped items. Enter data in nutrition tracker. You may be up several pounds, but calculate the calories of your indulgence. Divide by 3500, the calories of one pound. A binge of 875 calories means just 1/4 pound to lose plus the sodium/water weight. Do-able!
Don't give up. It's probably not as bad as you first thought. Give yourself 72 hours to lose the water weight, then the amount you need to lose to get back on track will be evident.

My mom used to save butter and margarine wrappers (folded, in a bag in the fridge) when she removed them from the product, in order to use down the road to grease her casserole dishes (one-time use, each). Not only does it save on oil/Pam spray, but it also keeps your hands from getting messy.
