Default Body attunement?

Not sure I discussed this on the forums, since I haven't visited in, uh, 7 months or so, but...

I'm going through some weird discrepancy in perception.
Part of me still makes me consider myself as "fat". Objectively, I know I'm just normal now, although not rail-thin either, of course. Just the good old need-time-to-adjust-to-new-weight problem, I guess.
But at the same time, I feel much more attuned to my body than I ever did before. I don't need to step on the scale or even to wear clothes to "feel" it. Some time ago, I fell sick, and then hurt my ankle, and couldn't exercise for quite some time (I've only started power-walking again recently). And I swear, I do feel the muscle loss. It's not a "I feel fat" (=emotional) state, it's really physical. I haven't gained weight (on the scale) either, only I feel... different.

I suppose this is a good thing in itself, meaning I'm less likely to blind myself to potential weight gain. But it's still weird. And other people I tried to mention it to don't seem to understand, believing "you're complaining you're fat, while you aren't".

I don't know if I'm explaining this well.
Do any of you feel/have felt the same?
The last clear definite function of men muscles aching to work, minds aching to create beyond the single need this is man.
