9. I actually think that's a healthier way to think about it.

 

It puts the weight in it's proper perspective, imho. Excess fat is a thing you can drop by eating the right amount of calories-- it doesn't define you as a person, it's just extra tissue. I do think people often see their weight as something so much a part of themselves that they can't ever beat it, but they can. Just takes a change in habits.

On the other hand, I suppose a lot of people might see this rephrasing as a way of saying it's fine to be morbidly obese.
