About the Author

Zoe Belle grew up the youngest of five children in a blended San Francisco area family consisting of a very petite mother, two very petite sisters, two brothers, and an overweight father. Her mother was beautiful but not much of a homemaker (read: did not cook). The combination of bad genes from her father and the lack of good nutrition led to a lifetime of obesity until her weight loss surgery in her late 50s. Growing up with three beautiful, petite women, and having three best friends who were very small, Zoe became a master of “cropping” herself, or most of her body, out of photos. Although heavy all her life, Zoe managed to maintain high self-esteem and strong self-confidence along with an outgoing personality. She had a successful career, first in banking, then in sales during the 1990s dot-com boom in Silicon Valley, then as the owner of two small businesses, first in California and then Hawaii. The last business took a huge toll on her health: because she was always a success in business and a failure at weight loss, she spent more time working than taking care of herself. When she retired at age 57, she had hit her highest weight of 223 lbs (101 kilos). Her weight was taking a toll on her health, her happiness, and her marriage. With the support of her husband, she made a life-changing decision to have bariatric surgery – a decision that changed both of their lives in ways they had never imagined. The short story: she started at 223 lbs (101 kilos), had the surgery in October 2011 at 204 lbs (92 kilos), and by September 2012 reached her goal weight of 139 lbs (63 kilos). She has maintained her weight at goal since then. The full story is the subject of her book, Queen of Crop. Zoe and her husband now reside in Amsterdam – in their opinion the most interesting and welcoming city in the world. They walk or bike everywhere and do not own a car. They entertain often, travel some, and are making every moment of every day special.
