I'M NOT THE NEW ME A Memoir

By Wendy McClure

Riverhead Trade. New. 2005. First Edition. Softcover. 1594480745 . New book, small remainder mark spine end bottom, couple very small creases bottom corner. A hilarious and sometimes poignant look at the absurdities of weight-loss culture from an appealing and original new voice. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 320 pages; From the creator of the immensely popular websites Pound and Candyboots, this is the memoir of Wendy McClure's odyssey-on-line and off-through the Valley of The Shadow of Her Really Big Ass. It's about the universe she created for herself when she couldn't see herself as a kicky Weight Loss Success Story, only she put it all on a website and became sort of an inspiration anyway. I'm Not The New Me is about coming to terms with a family heritage of fat and drastic surgeries, and about self-esteem issues that are nobody's business but your own. It's wondering what's left of yourself after you lose weight-and just who the hell you are if you gain it back. It's about the absurdities of online identities and fat girl clichés, and the sheer terror of appearing live and in person in your very own life. (296-noto) .

Many women waste countless years focusing on food and appearance, rather than spending energy on what holds deepest meaning for them in life. In What Are You Hungry For? Authors Taylor and Ginsburg show how obsessive dieting, a distorted body image and eating disorders are often symptoms of a deep spiritual void. They offer a revolutionary--and easy to follow--approach to resolving deep-seated food and body issues using methods adapted from Eastern mind/body practices such as yoga. What Are You Hungry For? Is a discovery book in the tradition of Susie Orbach's Fat is a Feminist Issue and Geneen Roth's When Food is Love. It will change the way you think about your body and the way you approach preparing and eating every single meal. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 226 pages .
