Default can I get an honest opinion?

Two photos wearing the same outfit-- one from late July, when I weighed about 190 and one from now, when I've been hovering around 187.

Do you see a difference? For some reason I think I look fatter in the more recent picture.

I think it's the lighting. The shadows are playing tricks on you. When I lightened up the 2nd one, you looked pretty much the same to me.

i think the lighting is the problem. Im not sure which is which, but the 2nd pic is more shadowy.

I really have no idea because of the lighting and quality of the second picture. I would recommend taking a new one, and then try to compare.

Yeah, its the lighting and also the distance from the cameras lens.

If that is the case, then your perception might be off, because I thought you looked smaller in the lighter image. Again, a lot of it is lighting and camera angle, though.

Even though one is shadowy; I think you look the same in both pics.

Ditto Tai. I thought you looked equally great in both.

Definitely the lighting, but I don't think you look any bigger in the recent pic.
When I do my comparison pics I try to find two not necessarily in the same outfit, but taken in the same place and with the same light. Gives a much better idea.

I agree that it's the lighting and distance of the photo.

Oh my, I thought they were flipped. You're definitely smaller in the recent picture, particularly in the chest. I was wondering if it was a different bra.

I think that you look smaller in the recent picture but, as others have said, the lighting, distance from camera, angle, etc are not exactly the same so it is hard to judge.

Regardless of which picture it is, you are looking fantastic!

You look great in both of them! The only difference I see is that your boobs look a little bigger in the darker one. Different bras? They can make you look totally different in the same outfit!

Thanks everybody!! I'm so sick of being stuck, and recently, I've just started feeling really fat again-- I think it's because I'm totally used to being this size now, so instead of being amazed at how little I am, I am back to focusing on how much is left....on the same scale, I'm about three pounds lighter now, but you know how it is with 3 pounds. A single bounce can erase it.
