Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

have a flat tummy (read all 2 entries…)
I have made progress, but

I am going to give up on this one to work more towards overall health, rather than targetting one specific area.

A clean diet and exercise for a long time will get you there. There will always be setbacks but if you stay on that track, you will achieve it. Make sure both your workouts and diet is effective—not just what you think is considered healthy or “a work out”

Thanks for commenting, I used to feel the same way

But a few years back I was working out heavily (jogging, Tae-Bo DVDs, Jillian Michael’s intense cardio-weight DVDs,yoga, kickboxing, and pilaties) 5 times a week.

I was kicking butt!

I ate a very healthy diet with proper portions, and when that didn’t work, I went vegetarian. All this went on for about three years. In which time I gained thirty pounds, and felt like hell.

My body needs something it isn’t getting, or doesn’t need something it is getting. A simple routine of diet and exercise hasn’t shown any results for me.

Yet, eating fast-food and not working out the past couple of months has shwon my weight and body fat percentage going down. =\ No idea why.

Blah, it sounds like you just need a longer more intense workout and a more strict diet.

And you might be inadvertently losing weight now because you are not eating enough overall calorie wise even if when you do it is heavy junk food.

I really hope you find the stimulus to start up again everyday and be committed to it when you decide to take the lifestyle plunge.

I think my biggest problems are gluten/wheat and dairy intake. I don’t think my body works well with these.

My next plunge will be a diet and workout regimen based on blood type, by Dr. Peter D’adamo, rather than a one-size-fits-all program: :)
