That is a really interesting question. I think I'd have to say yes, I'd still want to be fat, because this body has informed so much of who I am. I think that a lot of my perspective and compassion for others stems from my own experiences, good and bad, and if I had a different body, I'd be a different person, inside and out. Not better or worse, just different. And I like who I am. Sometimes I wish I could start over and be fat BUT more enlightened re: what matters and what is a waste of time; I think I might have been happier and more peaceful overall. I would have liked to have 40 year old wisdom in my 17 year old body, but who wouldn't? :)
