I agree with the basic premise here. Good post -- I especially liked the pictures.
I just want to add one thing: Our bodies may not define us, but they are a very important piece of us, since our physical health has a profound impact on every area of our life.
One cannot fully appreciate the concept of "self" without also appreciating the importance of "physical self."
For many people, getting healthy can be the first step on the road to greatness.
As you alluded to, the important thing to keep in mind is that our bodies are only one piece of the puzzle, and the ultimate definition of self extends beyond the physical.
