I don't think I'm fat or skinny, but I seem to accumulate fat on my belly easily.
Once I ''convert'' 25lbs of fat into 25lbs of lean mass, I'll be very happy with my body.

I don't think I'm chubby. I'm average. Which is a miracle considering how much(and what) I eat. I realize that I need to start watching myself and exercising more. I've gained a little weight the past few months. Weight gain tends to focus on to two parts of my body: the ass/thigh area, and the chest area.I have a few grabby wobbly bits that I need to shed, but otherwise, I'd be considered normal( I think).
I worry I'll turn out like my mother, who is quite the fatty. But then again, she didn't get fat till she had her 5th child and moved to north america.
I've lost 70 lbs in the last year, and at times in my head I still think of myself as that person.
Physical changes are easier to deal with at times than the mental readjustments that need to take place.
I've been doing a lot of weight and resistance exercises the past few months and that has added on a lot of muscle to me. I don't really think I am skinny by any means, just getting more athletic if anything else.
I am not sure I truly see myself as I am so I will have to consider this and perhaps post an update later.
Wow, good for you.
I'm about 70 pounds below my heaviest weight myself. Didn't do it all in the last year though - it was a long 'two steps forward, one step back' thing that took several years and everything is really starting to click lately. I'm at my lowest adult weight ever now.
I read it's quite common for people who were once a lot heavier to continue to see themselves that way after they lose weight. Oddly I'm having sort of the opposite effect - I'm constantly aware of all the ways in which my body's changed, and because I keep comparing my body to how it used to be I think I end up feeling "thin".
I'm not thin, really. Not fat either. In between, still flabbier than I'd like to be.
Don't remember if I've posted here before. Don't consider myself fat or skinny - I'm at a healthy weight, although some days I wish I had a bit less body fat (like most of us, hah).
I eat a lot though. I'm constantly hungry, with a large appetite (seriously I always get comments on how much I eat for a meal), and that really, really bad habit of eating for taste/crunch/boredom instead of hunger. I'll be in serious trouble when my metabolism slows down, unless I can manage to change my habits before then. At least I don't eat outrageously badly, although it could be healthier.
