RE: Question regarding size, genetics, weight
Is very unlikely to understand your situation just from reading your post, so I'll tell you something which relates to your situation.

There are larger people who are not fat, but they have wider bones. You can check this by catching a wrist with the thumb and index finger of the opposite hand.

When I was in high school, my coach kept telling me to keep my arms tight to the body. I was doing it, but forgetting about it in a few minutes.
I didn't paid attention to this aspect much until I began to train more seriously.
I've noticed that more "talented" or "gifted" athletes are keeping their arms tight to their body.
Then I realized that people who have 1-2 extra inches in both lateral sides of their belly can't keep their arms tight enough.

What effect has keeping the arms tight to the body?
Less torso rotation and increased arms usage.
Not to mention that the back stays straight all the time and is difficult to bend from the waist.

This is just an example of what extra weight or genetics can affect.
