As you've noticed, there's a lot of difference between BEING fat, and FEELING fat. Some very large people, fat by any useful definition, don't feel fat at all. And some people like yourself who are dfinitely within the normal weight range, FEEL fat and bothered by this, even though anyone else can see that they are pleasantly normal.
This is close to what happens in an eating disorder like Anorexia - even when skeletal, and anorexic feel disgustingly fat ( and that element of self-disgust is relevant, too ). Clever psychological reseach by various people has proved that in eating disorders like anorexia, people have a seriously distorted perception of their own weight / size, and always significantly over-estimate their shape, size, and weight.
Psychologists can very valuably help one to correct this sort of disturbenace, and to learn to enjoy one's normal body. Why not have a consultation and assessment ?
