At the very least, you showed insight by knowing that your perceptions of being fat were a distortion of reality, and that you needed help with this.
I don't know whether you've developed any further insight about why you see things in a distorted way, how this tendency developed, etc. My hunch is that you do have some insight into that and have a good capacity to develop even more insight into the problem and your feelings, etc. but that these kinds of insights are not easy to come by for anyone without a little help.
Racer, I know this diagnosis/arrogant doctor thing is very powerful, but my advice is to not let yourself get too caught up in it. It isn't worth the aggravation.
I am sure you are a very insightful person. Move on to some professionals who can show you some respect. Lord knows you deserve it.
