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.

ChelseysChapter Embracing life every day!

Lose 30 pounds (read all 3 entries…)
Eat more balanced, exercise more.

I’m not the kind of person to check calories on everything, I find that unbearable. I only do it on things I already know are bad for me, like chips I’ll check on calories, so I know I shouldn’t consume too much. I haven’t entirely stopped eating “bad” food. The thing is, that diets don’t work for me. I’ve already lost weight perfectly fine without following a strict diet, just by eating less than my body needs, but when I eat, I eat the things my body needs. Also, I dance a lot with my iPod on, I really love to dance, it keeps me busy, and I can do it whenever I feel like it. Sometimes I do it at the weirdest hours though. As for serious exercise, since my exams are done, me and my friend are going to hit the gym tomorrow morning, and going to try and work out at least 3 times a week. I do need to drink more water, because that definitely helps.

At the moment I weigh 75 Kilo’s, which is about 165 Lbs
I’d like to weigh about 63 Kilo’s, which is about 138 Lbs.

At my heaviest I was 84 Kilo’s, 185 Lbs, ever since that point, I’ve taken a turn in the whole food pattern thing and tried a lot of diets, even though diets never worked out for me. I seriously ate a bag of chips each day, together with a lot of other bad snacks. But by eating more balanced is how I got to the weight I’m at now, together with biking to places, and the dancing, amongst other things.
