I'll admit to fattie-status. I do think that it's very different to be aware of one's own potential fatness than to have the mentality that one is fat.
I have awareness of my weight, because I don't like to be delusional. In the same token, I don't have the mentality of "Momma dun told me i's gun always be a fat kid, so I's fat always ". I know people with that mentality and it's disturbing to me. I'd venture to say that my awareness in this regard allows me to be more confident and happier than a number of my friends who would be considered skinny or average. It's not something I'm ridiculously proud of either, just based on the fact that I wish said friends could tune into the reality of themselves and feel content like I do.

I would say average, neither overly fat or overly skinny. My ribs stick out, but I can never seem to get rid of my side fat and I do feel overweight. I work out excessively because I am so unhappy with that particular area, but it seems like nothing I do effects it. I guess it's just something I have to accept.
I'm at 205 lbs. right now. I feel best when I'm around 175-185, so I need to shed a few. I've done it before, but it's never an easy step to cut down on what you eat and exercise, especially when it doesn't feel good to do it, or it's raining, or cold outside, or whatever...
When I was younger, I thought I was fat. then I saw a video of a party from when I was around 24, and I was pretty skinny. I don't know why I had such a distorted image of myself, but I did.
Periods in my life when I'm not exercising as much I feel worse about my body. Then I go to the gym or run, even the first time back into a routine, and I look in the mirror, sweaty, pink-faced, DAMN YOU SEXY BITCHHHH! And I flex for myself. Hahaha... true story.
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
I know people would probably kill me for saying this but I want to lose some fat and get toned back down to 85-90 lbs. I know it is technically underweight but that was when I felt the best. Now I am 95-100 lbs and feel really lethargic (which usually means that I have been too sedentary). In essence, I kind of see myself as "fat" according to my personal standards. Active usually=upper 80's to lower 90s and not doing much= close to 100.
Subjectively and statistically, I am neither. I am very average in weight. But I should lose a little weight though, because I am really flabby. So I guess I consider myself sort of fat-skinny too. Running circles around my school and hitting the DDR mat should take care of that soon
