  1. This would be better:

    Seventeen years later, 150 pounds heavier and 5 ½ feet taller, I have become used to the American way of doing things, having lived the majority of my life in California and Washington.

    Word may still tell you it's a fragment. Who knows why Word's grammar checker does what it does?! It's not a fragment.

    If you have question about the changes I made, let me know.
