The one thing I keep hearing as my Czech loved ones see me is, "You look thin. Have you lost the weight? It's good!" In fact, I am pretty sure EVERYONE has said that.
So apparently I left to America as a fatty. Six months of dumplings and eating 8 times a day will do that to you, I suppose.
Next, I try to explain that I didn't necessarily lose weight in America...but I GAINED weight in Czech and THIS is what I normally look like.
And then I reassure them I won't leave a fatty this time and I get reminded of my promise every time I pass the sausages at a BBQ.
Thank you, Czech Republic.
