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.

2 More Pounds!

Okay, I don’t know if the scale is off or what. I hadn’t even gone to the bathroom and wasn’t undressed, stepped on the scale 3 times and it said 192.4. I figure if I had at least gone to the bathroom and undressed, I would be at least 192 or 191ish. My starting weight was 217 lbs 14 weeks ago yesterday.

Actually, when I weighed yesterday morning, I was at 194. Last Saturday, when I take all my official measurements & stuff, I was at 196ish. That would be awesome if I could be at 191-92. That would put me at a release of 25-26 pounds!!! That’s still less than 2 lbs a week, but is getting me way closer to the goal I want when I finish the Spartacus program, which I have another 2-3 weeks left (have to makeup some workouts).

I’d really love by the time I finish all the workouts to be close to 185 lbs or less. If the pounds gone are for reals and it sticks tomorrow, despite me making a little pig of myself yesterday, that’s awesome.

Oh, after I wrote that “Little Piggy” entry, I was still wanting something else, so I ate a big thing of homemade chocolate pudding that had great protein & fat in it (avocado, unsweetened coconut milk, unsweetened chocolate, whey protein, banana, cinnamon). It was so rich and chocolatey. That really satisfied me and I didn’t have any guilt in eating it.

It’s great to be able to eat yummy, delicious foods, totally enjoying it AND be able to lose weight. Maybe the HIIT resistance workouts I did earlier in the week really helped, and that I took yesterday off to give my body rest. It’s all coming together.

Actually, if the weight was really that when I stepped on the scale (2-3 times), if that sticks for tomorrow, then I’m about at my halfway point of losing 52 pounds. Soooo very exciting.

Praise God!! Praise God! Praise God!
