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.

Listed myself up in the gym

I’m going 2-3 times a week, it’s very expensive but so “comfortable” that it actually makes exercising fun, something I never thought of! I still don’t do as much as I should, it’s only once a week that I’ve been able to do an hour, the rest of times I arrive so late that I can only do half an hour, but even so I’ve lost my first two kilos after only two weeks! The last 2 weeks I lost considerably less, but probably because I’m now rewarding myself with chocolate lol…

On and off

Have continued doing my 20 min on and off, when I haven’t slept much or am not feeling well I don’t bother, but I still do it at least twice a week, usually every second or third day.

Days that I don’t, I often go swimming or a half hour brisk walk. I don’t see that I have actually lost weight, but “things look a little bit more in their place”, if that makes sense.

Did my 20 min today

Phew, first time in… well, to tell you the truth, I don’t know if I have ever done 20 min non-stop on the step machine. I’m proud of myself! Let’s see if I can do it tomorrow too!

Goal - company party hourglass!

I’ve realised that I have 25 days until this, so this would be an intermediate goal that I believe is attainable. I did my 15 min step challenge today, and I actually think I could now do more, I have “accepted this healthy habit” quite well. My weight right now is 67k, I´ll try to get down to the 58 I was relatively happy with (although to be truthful, my ideal will still be 55). It’s almost then kilos in less than a month, I so want to do this! I’ll try to go for the 20 min on the step machine with some streched and stomach curls too. God please help me! I know you´re there!

Healthy Lifestyle

I’ve already gone through the first steps; reducing my junk food intake and my pseudo-workout – between 5 and 15 mins of step machine, followed by a hearty shower and rubdown every day. May not seem like much, but it’s a lot for this former couch potato! When I had a cold I didn’t exercise for 2 days though, tried since to keep up the good work. I think it’s working, but just so little by little it’s barely noticeable.
