Instead of cutting out the subject and blurring the remaining background, I would put a layer mask on the image and use surface blur, not Gaussian blur.

Also, on the layer labled "big flaws," you can reduce file size by cloning/healing on a blank layer rather than on a duplicate of the pixel layer.

Awesome.  Thank you, Sabrina! I do not think I have ever tried the surface blur feature.
