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.

lose the weight i need to lose and keep it off (read all 21 entries…)
Learned something new

This week I learned that there is such a thing as not eating enough for weight loss.
For two days I didn’t have a real dinner and a small lunch.
As a result I’m stuck.
I’ll go and exercise some to kickstart my body :)


Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency 2014 is My Year to FLOURISH! Thank you, Heavenly Papa!


I even found for me that if I don’t eat enough and of the right things (mainly, if I consume too much sugar or not enough fat or protein), that I will actually gain weight.

For me, if I exercise too much, I can also gain weight (bodyfat), not muscle as well as not eat enough. So, the combination of not eating enough of the right things and exercising too much is not a good combination (at least for me).

What is notable and interesting (for me) is that the weeks I actually eat more healthy fats, my bodyfat (and inches) go down quicker.

That doesn’t mean to go load up on fatty eating, but if you’re going low fat, that might actually be making you fatter.

Healthy fats:
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Avocados
  • Wild fish like salmon
  • Bacon with no nitrites
  • Coconut oil
  • Organic butter, heavy cream

Eating these things combined with good proteins, has helped me to not be hungry and it seems to melt fat away quicker.

The last week, I have eaten lower in fat because of not feeling well, and I didn’t release hardly anything.

How interesting

I’ve never thought about this but now that I do some strange things seem to make sense.
The less I ate, the more I gained.
I guess I’ll have to rethink my strategy and reevaluate my diet…

Thank you very much!
