There's a 'Wendy' in all of us....
I laughed, I cried, but most importantly, I was FINALLY able to relate to someone without feeling bashful for myself when I read the memoir of Wendy McClure¿s - I¿m Not the New Me. I learned so much from Wendy's bad encounters in life, bless her heart, but thanks to her, I am a new individual with different perspectives in life. She showed me how to be strong no matter what...so what if I DO have a couple of extra pounds on my sides?! That shouldn't stop me from bliss....I'm the one who causes the pain...I am the one who suffers, not others....I shouldn't let OTHERS bring me down...I have the greatest power....the power to govern myself!...I decide what's important in my life and I have realized that 'weight issues' should not be taken to the extreme ....I no longer am that vulnerable person I once was.....I no longer possess weak qualities of an insecure girl.....I won't let every particle of myself be consumed of what's 'acceptable or more preferable' in today's society....I just have one thing to say,....everything depends on whether YOU want cricism to become constructive or destructive...it is all up to you.Was this review helpful?

What a great read!
First of all, let me say that I flew through this book. It only took me a couple of nights. Second, I totally related to Wendy. I've also struggled with weight. The way she wrote, it was like sitting over coffee talking to a friend. Even though the book is non-fiction, it reads like a fiction book. The fact that this was a real person though made the book even more interesting to me. I really just loved this book. If you're a fan of Jennifer Weiner, than you're going to love this book as well!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was such fun to read. Wendy takes a trip through her weight issues while making the reader feel like she's just stolen their thoughts about themselves right out of their head! This is a book many women out there can relate to. It is hilarious and inspiring to say the least.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Wendy McClure REALLY has broken down what a lot of women think about on a daily basis but are too afraid to talk about or admit to. This book is a wonderful humorous insight to the ups and downs of life as a woman with 'issues'. A great read! And EXTREMELY funny!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
