Getting same problem on two terribilis, have read a lot but would like information from anyone that got results because there seems to be a lot of theory.

Find a vet. Call around to find one who will see your frog, or at least run a fecal test for you. The test is not expensive.

It honestly just looks like a fat female leuc to me. Maybe cut back on the feeding a bit (quantity and frequency).
Azureus, Citronella, Patricia, leucomelas, terribilis 'Yellow', pumilio 'bastimentos/cemetery'

This may be accurate but it is hard to tell definitively as a better side picture would be better than this one. This angle doesn't really define it well enough.
