Year 2 Change
Dear Reader-

Are you up for a challenge?

It has been a little over 3 months since Puddie and I started our Year 2 Change challenge to lose the weight for GOODe.

Your support, encouragement and the accountability we feel towards you has been so critical to our success.

To date you have helped us completely overhaul our eating habits and exercise routines… while dropping a combined 46.7 lbs.

It hasn’t been easy… but it has been easier with you cheering us on all the way!

And now, as we approach the new year and many folks are thinking about possibly changing something about their lives… be it weight, tobacco, money management, spiritual growth, simply moving more, etc– we would like to return the favor.

You Can Make a Change

We want to tell you that despite that nagging feeling that this year will be just like the last and the one before that… we are proof IT CAN BE DIFFERENT.

We want to create an environment where you feel encouraged.

We want to offer you a safe place for accountability.

Will You Take Our Challenge?

Soo… we offer you a challenge and a chance to win $100 Amazon Gift Card for committing to your goal.

And, here is the great news… the more you work towards your goal, the more chances you will have to enter to win.

And, here is the REALLY great news… everyone who commits to this challenge really wins the game of life because by the end of the challenge, you will be well on your way to meeting your goal.


We are looking for readers who are willing to commit to the next 3 months to doing something specific to work towards a change in their lives they have been wanting to make.


Our challenge is to set a goal… any goal that helps you move towards a change you want to make this year.

It could be setting and working off a budget.

It could be committing to moving more.

It could be recording your diet intake daily.

It could be going to church every Sunday. Or reading your bible 5 days a week.

OR whatever you want to commit to work on…

The point is to find something small and doable that helps you inch towards your goal day by day so that when you look up you have walked a mile on your journey by the end of 3 months.

Once you know what you want to do… Let us know on this form.

We will keep your goal confidential.

Once you set your goal, you can enter to win


Once you set your goal you check in weekly on our results posts (starting next week) and just click the button on our giveaway widget that you have met/worked on your goal that week.


All entries have to be submitted on the widgets like the one below.

However, you can earn your entries (to be recorded here) by meeting your goals AND by encouraging others who are committing to making a Year 2 Change.


Report your progress each week and join in the fun of encouraging others.

Got a favorite quote or something that inspires you? Share it with us and others who want to make a change.

Encouragement can be shared on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram by using the #Year2Change hashtag.

Support can be found and shared on our Year 2 Change Facebook Page, Pinterest Inspiration Page and brand new Google+ Community.

Share your successes. Share your struggles. Share your encouragement for others.

And gain bonus entries to win!

    know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue
    with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
