Bountiful Women - Large Women's Secrets for Living The Life They Desire

Bountiful Women is a delicious gift, a fascinating, must-read, for the bountiful women of the world and the people who love them! An upbeat, wise, and delightfully honest guidebook for large women, it is chock full of practical information and creative strategies for physical and emotional well-being.

In spite of the prevalence of large women in our culture, they are not as visible as the statistics suggest. Where are they? Are they "weighting" until they reach some imaginary right size? Can they live a fulfilling life regardless of their size? In Bountiful Women, psychologist Bonnie Bernell, herself a bountiful woman, answers these questions with a resounding "yes"! She encourages readers to accept their bodies and relates how to deal with parental and employer disapproval, assumptions by society (especially by airlines, theaters, and restaurants) that everyone fits into a size 12 seat, and the "If I'm large, I'm unlovable" attitude.

Slowly, the deepening verdure o'er the earth;
To put their foliage out, the woods are slack,
And one by one the singing-birds come back."
