It is midnight of the morning of the big announcement of our Year 2 Change project.
Let me start by saying that we welcome you to join us in our Year 2 Change challenge.
What exactly is the challenge?
Take one year to focus on changing one thing for your family forever.
It can be anything, it doesn’t have to be the same thing we pick.
If you are joining us, we’d love to hear about your goal!
Drum Roll Please…
As for us, anticipation has been a building both from interested readers and here at home.
We have been preparing and setting the stage and now it is time to let you in on the news.
This year’s Year 2 Change will be: Losing the Weight for Goode.
Two real parents, keeping it real and making real change. We want to get moving and get healthy this year and we having enlisted some friends to help along the way (more on that on another day). Oh and in true pun fashion, Goode actually means 3 different things:
1. Losing the weight for us (the Goodes).
We ultimately want to lose the weight to serve as a healthy example to Miss Add and to stick around and continue to enjoy the GOODe life ;).
Weight has been a weighty issue for us for most of our lives.
But, we know that there is no time like the present to make a change that will change our future and we are going for it.
2. Losing the weight for life (for GOODe).
This isn’t a quick fix or a weight loss program. We will be using tried and true methods that have worked for us and some new things along the way.
If weight loss is your Year 2 Change goal, please know we aren’t experts and don’t intend on being experts…
We are just figuring this out as we go.
There WILL be successes and struggles.
There will NOT be a drastic unrealistic mentality (Read: Cookies will still have a role in our lives… just not a leading role anymore ).
Life change is what we are after… and normalcy is a big part in achieving that… even if it is a new normal.
3. Losing the weight for charity (for GOODe).
A lot of times when folks lose weight, they gain it right back… But we are determined to lose the weight and
gain give it right back!
For every pound we lose, we are going to donate a pound of food to our friends over at Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) and welcome you to join us in donating either to FIsH or your local pantry as a way to cheer everyone on that commits to our Year 2 Change.
As you know, hunger is a huge issue in Indiana and in our nation. Our goal is to help others gain awareness as we lose the weight.
Want to join us?
We already have a couple awesome friends ready to come along side us and celebrate this year of change… (details coming soon ;)).
But, how about you???
Would you like to take one year to focus on changing one thing for your family forever?
It can be anything, it doesn’t have to be weight loss.
