When I read the blog entry about the You Bars and the discount for spark members I decided to create my own bar. Due to the expense I was a little shocked at how small the bars were. The bars arrived 6 days after I placed my order. WOW is all... Read more

We have 2 "miniature" Dachshunds. The male, Fred, tips the scale at 20 lbs. He's a solid little guy who loves his treats and will follow us around the house "talking" to us until we give him one. He's smart about only doing this once every mo... Read more

I grew up in a family of overweight people who ate a LOT of food. I never have overeaten and they use to tease me about how little I ate. My Father passed away 11 yrs ago from health complications due to type 2 diabetes, he had only been diagn... Read more
