I often feel fat because I feel like my torso and limbs are bloated and I have trouble moving around. Although I am male I have struggle with body issues my whole life. Even doctors tell me that I am obese at 230 lbs 5'10" but I don’t feel fat most of the time. But there are days when my skin feels physically tight as if the fat is trying to push it’s way out. I know that isn’t what you wrote about but I felt like I needed to share.
