I would obviously second everything that the Spark Coach said. But also, you can enjoy the treats of all these events, just don't overdo it! It won't necessarily be easy, but it is good pratice for moderation!
Be sure your program is set up accurately for your current weight and activity level.
Be sure you are eating within that range and not always aiming for the lower end. Many people find success eating at the top end of the range on cardio workout days and in the mid to lower end of the range on non-workout or light workout days.
Take a look at your macro-nutient intake patterns. If your carbohydrate is at the upper end of your range and your protein intake at the lower end, perhaps your body will respond better if those are switched a bit.
You are very close and sometimes it is just a matter of finding the right tweaks that need to be made to fine tune your program to take you home to the goal finish line.

My goal is to get to 220 by June 1 ... and I only have 5 more pounds to lose! I started at 264 on January 10 (my birthday) and have dropped almost 40 pounds in 5 1/2 months. I need help, though, getting those last 5 gone - lots of celebrations in May - birthdays, Mother's Day (blew it yesterday eating out) and events working to pull me off track. Any suggestions?
