My Newly Discovered, Former Fat Self

A few weeks back, I was out having lunch with some German and Swiss colleagues when one of them asked me,

“So in America, it’s impossible to not get fat, right?”

Before I could answer, another Swiss colleague chimed in,

“What do you mean? She’s not fat.”

To which he answered,

“Yes, but she’s been in Switzerland for two years.”

So basically, in their minds I was a blimp in my pre-expat life. Great.
