And when you look in the mirror there’s this one certain angle that from your perspective makes you look great. And you turn to the side and quickly go back because that’s not how you envision yourself in your head all fat with folds and man boobs and saggy arms, you like looking at yourself from “this” perspective when your shoulders are square with your chin up. Yeah this is how everyone sees me, where I’m meaty maybe even chubby but like a good athletic chubby so you convince yourself you’re ok when you’re actually not..
