When I wish I was thin, I am actually wishing that the intricate system of neurotransmitters that regulate our appetite was somehow optimized just for me. Mercifully it is not. Our fierce attraction to food was optimized to serve life under conditions of hard labor and scarcity. Without it, others would die. I reject the cultural norms that make me long for a slim body. When I embrace them, and all they imply, I make myself the measure of the world.
