Jen Larsen always thought that if she could only lose some
weight, she would be unstoppable. She was convinced that
once she found a way to not be fat any more, she would have
the perfect existence she’d always dreamed of. When diet
after diet failed, she decided to try bariatric surgery, and
it worked better than she ever could have dreamed: she lost
180 pounds. As the weight fell away, though, Larsen realized
that getting skinny was not the magical cure she thought it
would be—and suddenly, she wasn’t sure who she was anymore.
Stranger Here is the brutally honest, surprisingly hilarious
story of one woman’s journey from one extreme of the weight
spectrum to the other, and of the unexpected emotional chaos
it created. Insightful and unsparing in her
self-examination, Larsen depicts the exhilarating highs and
devastating lows she experienced as a result of her weight
loss—the incredible joy of finally beginning to look like
the image of herself she’s always carried inside her head,
and the crushing pain and confusion of feeling like a
stranger in her own body after losing the weight that has
always defined her
