I am interested in seeing: "Get Thinner This Winter" designed by SparkPeople's Dietitian Becky - that is suppose to be in the magazine.
I probably could figure it out.

I haven't been in a store since a started this topic.
So I guessing I am not one to rush out.
I broke a habit of buying a magazine at the grocery checkout a long time ago. I don't want to get started again.

I'd read someone's SP blog about how she rushed to WalMart to get a copy and found that it was almost completely sold out.
She's not the only one who does that.
It sounds like a mania or an obsession.

The SparkPeople who are profiled in these magazines (there have been more than a few) are also profiled here, so you don't have to buy a magazine.
Some of them are still active on SP, so you can visit their pages, leave comments, and (maybe) get feedback from them, which could be more useful than just reading an article in a magazine.

I think those articles mainly promote SP to people who haven't yet signed up.

I've never considered buying them.

I've already had all the bad things thrown at me early in life, so now that those are out of the way, my future should be wonderful.

Nope. Now, if I see it in the library, I might flip through. But will not buy just because there's spark stories in it.

I rarely buy magazines at the store. I won't be buying it. Might flip through it while waiting in line.

I read the Daily Spark blogs. Got to get those points. Today, I read:
Special SparkPeople Issue of 'All You' Magazine Out Now
www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=spe
ci
al_sparkpeople_issue_of_all_you_magaR>zine_out_now


Do you buy magazines such as this, just because there is an article about SPARK PEOPLE in it?
Are you planning to buy this issue of 'All You' Magazine? Would this be a Frugal purchase?

This isn't the kind of magazine found at my library. I am at least going to take a peak at it as it does sound interesting. I have no idea how much it costs.
