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.

Been doing it for a month

I have been doing this for a month and it seems to work. I don’t think I will ever get a gym membership again. My own body supplies all the weight I need. That is 1 bill less for me too.

Ok back on it!

Ok, so now I am back on this. I am trying to gain mass. I have cut my gym membership because I barely have time to go anyway and it is a pain to drive there. Instead I have a shake weight, ab roller, iron gym, exercise ball, and curling bar at home. I am going to complete the collection by getting a dip bar and skipping rope. As far as I am concerned between these things and furniture around the house, this is all I really need. Btw, I am at 153 now.

Starting to see the difference

I’ve been using my exercise ball and curling bar at home. I have a gym membership and I’ve been going like everyday for a few weeks now. I’m starting to see a difference. I want to get a six pack.

Finally embarking upon my journey!

I’m finally going to attack this goal hard. Honestly, I feel I’m a little small and I want to just get a little bigger. I’m 5’6 144 pounds now, I want to go up to 151 pounds (its a cool number). Also, I want to get rid get a six pack and get things more lean.

For the last 3 weeks I’ve completely cut out sweets and sugar sources cold turkey as well as started jogging and working out at home. I’ve been eating 6 light meals a day to speed up my metabolism and burn fat; and I’m eating only vegetables, whole grain, and protein. Now I’m even going harder and restricting my protein to just fish.

I’m jogging about 3 miles in 30 minutes right now. I’m going to improve!
