    Step 3+ - how to deal with social events?

    Hi

    I am currently on step 3 after working up from SS. For those on step 3 and above steps, how do you deal with social events, weekends away and nights out? I get married in June and bridesmaid for my best mate in April. I have a few hen do's and social events coming up and wondered how others deal with this and if you still manage to loose weight?
    I am thinking of moving down to step 2 for the next 2 weeks to compensate for two events I have on the next two weekends.

    Shame there aren't any answers to this. I'm just about to finish my first week on step 3 but have a wedding coming up. I will put on here how it all goes.

    Pace yourself at the events, don't overdo it if possible and then be fully committed to 1000 calories a day when you're not going anywhere. You probably won't lose anything those weeks but you won't gain either. I find now that 1400 calories in my maintenance allowance, I don't lose or gain on a day I take that amount in once it's made up on healthy stuff and not all sweets. 1,200 calories is my amount for losing a lb a week and then 800-1000 calories is for undoing the damage. The best food I find for "angelic" days is porridge and a boiled egg for breakfast, chicken and veg for lunch and a can of tuna in the evenings. Swap any or all of these out for a cambridge shake.

    Thanks Kiwi!

    I forgot to reply to this after the wedding. I went to Italy for a week including a wedding and put on 5lbs. But I stuck to small amounts of carbs and did t go pasta/pizza/desert mad and it all dropped off the following week. I'm now up to step 4.

    I find that sticking to protein and veg is a good way to know what's going into me at an event. I find the carbs tempting but overloading so I just don't have them.

    I had the toast wine but then switched to spirits as they are less calorific.

    I am finding step four quite difficult but then that's just because I get a routine and then it changes to something else and I need to get used to that too!

    I have my two products a day, fruit (weighed out and cals checked), carbs in the form of cereal or grains rather than bread or potatoes (my preference I find bread and potatoes don't fill me up at the time but make me feel bloated later on), plus good protein and veg.

    It's going ok at the mo but I'm not expecting any loss this week as I only stepped up less than a week ago. Once my body gets used to this step I'll lose and then step up again.
