Good words from Deena Shoemaker. Clothes sizes change from brand to brand and are never universal. If you're making a change, choose other markers to measure your progress.

"We must approach health and wellness as continuous endeavors. As Cervantes wrote in Don Quixote, “The journey is better than the inn.” This is the secret to life, truly. While we must be guided by a progression of goals, we must understand that there is no final destination. The second we stop striving, thinking, adapting, and growing, is when we begin dying.
Likewise, the greatest mistake of nutrition and diet is making changes that are not sustainable in the long term. When we don’t have the patience to make gradual shifts, gradual habit changes, and a commitment to lifestyle change, then we are doomed to fail."

"When researchers gave adults and children water mixed with various amounts of sugar, adults preferred sugar concentrations similar to that of a can of soda, while finding higher concentrations too sweet. By comparison, children preferred at least twice that concentration, and younger children had virtually no limit."

TL;DR:
1. Children's cravings for sugar may be an evolutionary advantage when calories were scarce.
2. Sugar acts as a pain reliever in children.
3. Bone growth may contribute to the decrease of these cravings as children age.
