One of my favourite sentiments is this- "you are not fat, you have fat. You also have fingernails, that doesn't mean you are fingernails." The point is, while how you 'feel' about your body image is very much a part of you / what you are, your weight doesn't HAVE to be. I like to separate being happy with myself as a person from being happy with my body, I'm not 'happy' with my body, I'd like to be fitter, I'd like to be able to run longer, lift heavier weights. But I am happy with who I am as a person, and I think THAT is what is important.
