Your attitude towards yourself and towards others is going to be influenced by the look and shape of your body. You simply cannot separate your self perception from what you see in the mirror on a daily basis.
This will color how you view everyone else even if you don't realize it.
It is interesting, the difference in my perception and judgement of other people in the gym was like before I made my transformation, and then again after I became one of those people I was 'judging'.
It's definitely a new perspective and a fairer, more accepting perspective, and finally you'll never know what it feels like until you make the change for yourself.
Now I am post surgery , back to square one if you will but with a fresh pair of eyes. I welcome this next opportunity for transformation....weary but wiser.
