I believe that yes, you can be obese and fit. I can keep up with the average person even though I am usually twice their weight.
You definitely sound like you're in the same boat as me. I'm 260lbs with jiggly arms (I call them 'turkey wings'), a half solid half jiggly belly, jiggly thighs and rock solid lower legs. We're also the same in the fact that we don't want to be tiny, just smaller. My goal weight is 170lbs, even though according to society I'd still be overweight by 15 lbs.
Try throwing a bit of extra exercise into your days, a sort that you wouldn't usually do. I've done that lately, and already lost almost 4lbs in like, a week!
