I wanted to wear a size 14 for my summer job because I had a bad experience with one of the supervisors about my weight the year before (she isn't there this year and I hear all the new supervisors are really nice). The main reason I wanted to be at a smaller size was because we make a kuspuk at work and I wanted to be able to wear a medium for it. For a few months in winter I was really struggling because, well, who doesn't struggle in winter. I pulled myself out my funk, though, and dropped the last five pounds I needed to fit into my new pants! This new energy boost will give me a head start for summer!
