More About the Author

"It is an illusion to believe that your body is something to be ashamed of. You are a Being of Light and Love, and your Body is simply a unique expression of that Love and Light!"

That is the introductory quote in STEPHANIE RAINBOW BELL's Amazon Best Seller, BEAUTIFUL AT ANY SIZE: The Plus Size Woman's Guide to Nurturing Confidence and Self-Esteem and its "sister book," created due to popular demand, BEAUTIFUL AT EVERY SIZE: The EVERY Woman's Guide To Nurturing Confidence & Self-Esteem About Your Body.

Stephanie writes with deep compassion and sensitivity gleaned from nearly six decades of experiencing life well-over what western culture deems as a "normal" weight. One of the first stories she remembers hearing as a child was how her parents put her on skim milk as soon as she was off formula. In their best efforts to protect their daughter from a genetic propensity to obesity, Stephanie's parents would lock up the fridge and the cabinets to keep her away from food and prepare bag lunches of celery sticks and carrots instead of the usual PB and J that her friends had.

At the age of 17, Stephanie married her first boyfriend in order to leave the restrictions of her parent's home and promptly gained her first 100 pounds. Over the next year, her weight skyrocketed to over 300 pounds, and except on a few rare occasions, she hasn't seen the 200s on a scale for the past 40 years.

Stephanie's diet story is similar to a lot of plus sizes. She tried countless diet and exercise programs through the years, most with little or no success. It wasn't for lack of effort or laziness either. As Stephanie also continued to study metaphysics and develop her spirituality, she eventually came to the decision that there were spiritual reasons for her size that went above and beyond whatever she had learned about herself in psychologists' offices.
And that's when Stephanie did something quite unusual and contrary to all the diet and exercise plans and books and program.

Stephanie decided to make peace with her size, just as it was.

No more diets! No more exercise programs just for the sake of losing weight. No more diet books or recipes.

Stephanie, with bold determination and clarity, set out to find ways to change her own thinking about the "badness" of being fat and develop a belief system that honored her value as a human being, regardless of her size.

No easy feat in a world and culture of media constantly sending the message that "thin is beautiful" and the never-ending cycle of diet and exercise programs telling you that "you can lose all that weight in just 30 days" . . . Yeah . . . right (NOT)!

Yet, Stephanie drew on her years of spiritual studies, weight loss and alternative healing modalities to find practical tools to transform her lifelong mindset of shame about her body, into compassion and indeed a deep love for the outstanding service her body has performed throughout her life. And eventually reached a place she had long sought . . . peace with her body at its current size. She reduced the flood of self-shame, blame and not-good-enoughness to a tiny, occasional drip.

In 2008, Stephanie retired from her 35+ year career in legal administration to become an author and Mindset Makeover Coach. Stephanie felt the mid-life call to help others overcome their painful life experiences as she had done and began teaching, coaching and writing.

In 2012, while preparing what she thought would be an outline for a new course, Stephanie had a "lightbulb moment" and realized that what she was actually creating was a powerful framework to view our bodies with compassion, gratitude and reverence, regardless of our size or shape. The result of that original course outline became the best-selling book BEAUTIFUL AT ANY SIZE: The Plus Size Woman's Guide to Nurturing Confidence & Self Esteem.

Soon thereafter, at the prompting of many women who did not consider themselves "plus size" but were deeply touched by the information and concepts in the original book, Stephanie created what she calls the "sister book" for women of EVERY size . . . BEAUTIFUL AT EVERY SIZE: The EVERY Woman's Guide to Nurturing Confidence & Self-Esteem About Your Body.

Today, with the utmost sensitivity and a playful and (sometimes wicked) sense of humor, Stephanie supports her clients to transform the conflicting beliefs and thought patterns that keep them trapped in pain and misery in any area of their life. She is especially passionate about transforming body shame. Using her intuitive knowing, compassion and giant transformational toolkit, Stephanie guides her clients to create satisfying lives filled with peace, happiness and prosperity.

Stephanie lives under the bright lights and blue skies of Las Vegas, Nevada. She is the doting caretaker of her fur-baby, the Lovely Lola Rainbow, a senior Chihuahua, rescued from the Nevada SPCA in 2009. Stephanie donates a portion of her profits to the NVSCPCA, ever grateful to the NVSCPA for their no-kill policy which kept Lola alive for 8 months prior to her adoption.

Stephanie can be contacted for interviews, speaking engagements or coaching via her website www.StephanieRainbowBell.com.

Format: Paperback
Beautiful At Any Size is the perfect way to start the New Year! This is the time of year that women hear so many negative messages about feeling guilty about our shape and size, and we are encouraged to start paying for our sins at the local gym to do penance. I would rather start my new year with Stephanie Rainbow Bell's message about loving ourselves and nurturing our confidence and self-esteem. Just this morning, my exercise instructor started the session by asking, "Are you here because you are guilty about what you ate over the holidays?" and I yelled back, "No! I'm here because its fun to move my body and I love having fun!" Thank you, Stephanie, for your message and your spirit and your heart. Let's rock 2012-- Beautiful at Any Size!
