I think this is a combo of body dysmorphia and not wearing fitted enough clothes.

I think that your jeans and your dresses are at least a size too big, and not making the most of your figure.

There is also the self critical factor. We are the same weight (you're 1" taller & +5 lbs in these pics, so the same), and you'd tell me I was crazy if I said my waist is thick and my thighs were fluffy, right?

No way would I even think of you as fluffy. I see you as svelte and slim with a perfect figure/proportion and smokin' hot! :D I just think I carry my weight differently (in my lower abdomen and booty/thighs in a jiggly loose sorta way. LOL. And yes, of course you're right...it's BD and a highly self-critical lens. I see myself very harshly and I don't apply that lens to others.

And of course you're right. It IS stinkin-thinkin lol! :D Thanks!

I'm choosing clothing/undergaments that helps make me look thin and well proportioned. My bras are stuffed, there are Spanx under my Elle Woods dress. High waisted and skin tight are your friend. Trust me I have a lot of jiggle. My stomach is nowhere near flat, unless I will it to be with spandex. Even then I have a small pooch, which I am embracing as my "feminine shape" 😂 You're giving me too much credit and you too little :)

Outfit of the day. I love having girly moments in dresses, but this is what I normally wear.

So much arm and leg envy!

(But I'm not willing to put all the hard work into them that you are!)

And I am out of gray- black- brown forever! Bought into that Dark Shades are Slimming HooHah! Have you EVER heard anyone tell a Charcoal Briquet they are looking Especially Slim Today? Nope, me neither! So Frustr8's Sartorial Rebirth? Colors, prints, Maybe polka dots? Leggings, always envied others wearing them, Now I do in 17-19 JUNIORS,my original goal was a 15 Junior, so Achievable? Oh Yeah!.And a NSV - type Victory? Saw my profile as I passed something Reflective, I am still a Larger- than- Life person, this regenerated Tomboy will NEVER BE PETITE, but no booty protruding in the back, little if any Pooch in the front, I actually look like somebody You might want to meet and greet on the street instead of a Train Wreck of Flesh, And I Think I actually look Taller now! And you'll please Excuse my 💦 of Joy because although it too also happened for OTHERS it never did before for ME!
Although the Bariatric Clinic has gone out of their way to ignore and frustrate ME, Thank You Again Dr Needleman ! Between your skill and my perseverance ---A Miracle has been Wrought! Frustr8 is Absolutely, Positively Fantabulous!🌈😛😛😛

Adorable. Now please reassure me that no Spanx or tube socks were harmed in the making of this at home casual photo? :) Cuz you still look very slim and svelte and no pooch to me. :)

Ok, pix of the spanx style you have. I've tried so many time to buy them, but it's like "Advanced" work for me and my eyes end up crossed and I get stalled with indecision about which is the correct version! :D

And the foobs are still fine, but I still use the padding that came with my sports bras from Big Lots. They are perfect little bra stuffers to make you look full and fab! :D

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
