You do make a good point. I've always been embarrassed to wear a bathing suit at the beach. But was there last week and SWMBO asked why I hadn't taken my shirt off. I told her and she chuckled and told me to look around. With the exception of a couple of teenage kouroi strutting about, every other guy was bigger than I, some were morbidly obese.
This is less self-congratulatory than it is an observation about how fat we've become as a country. It is sad.
It's also ironic that even though I acknowledge that I am getting thinner and from some angles, with my gut sucked in, I really don't look half-bad, I still think of myself as disgustingly obese. I wonder if that self-mage will ever go away?
