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.

Next week

I start total meal replacement, to shift the recent weight I have put on, I will keep this updated with my progress.

time to get serious about this goal

I am moving so I will work on this goal when I know exactly what facilities are nearby- hopefully if I stay within the same area I will be able to continue and rejoin my WeightWatchers meetings and join a kick boxing class so that I have more energy and can work towards looking great this Summer :)I am so done with being heavy this year

I am still

waiting for the green light from my nurse so I can start working out. I have put on a lot of weight post surgery and the weather in the UK has been amazing so its not been nice feeling like a whale :( it could be another 3 weeks before I am allowed to work out. So I have just been eating little and as healthy as I can.

I have put on

weight since having an operation on my back, this also means no exercise for a while. Its pretty depressing seeing myself get bigger and not being able to do much about it but I guess my health comes first. I actually miss the gym which is something I thought I would never say!

I am trying

to follow a healthier lifestyle, so I have stopped having all fizzy drinks and I am sticking to plain water, herbal tea as well as normal tea and coffee (none of the calorific kinds from Starbucks etc.)

I am trying to drink a lot more water and snack more on fruit and also get moving a bit more. I will start doing my exercise DVD at least 4 times a week to speed the process of getting good results up. I am also trying to build exercise into my everyday routine, when the weather gets a bit better here I will start walking a lot more because I do enjoy it and it is a easy way to get some exercise into the day. I am no longer skipping meals because its just not good for you. I make the time to have breakfast, lunch and dinner and my body now naturally feels hungry when it is time to eat.

I am trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle so that I feel less tired and get less ill, loosing weight is a bonus.

I need to

start putting a bit more effort into this goal! Going to a class tomorrow on healthy eating, I just do not have a clue how to prepare healthy filling meals that do not leave me starving after! The exercise part just is not an issue, I enjoy working out but the weight is not coming off easy so it must be my eating.

This year

I cut out having sugar in my tea and I realised how much better it tastes! I doubt I will be going back to having sugar now. I start running next week and I am excited, hope this year is going to be a happy and healthy one for everybody :)

I have

started using my mini trampoline, because I can use it in front of the TV, its fun and low impact exercise. I want to start slow as I build my fitness up.

My goal

is to get into shape by summer 2012, I have given myself a long term goal because I know it has taken me a lot of time to put this weight on so it will not come off overnight. I do not want to crash diet, I want to live a better lifestyle and change my bad habits. I am going to eat less food that is bad for me and consume more vegetables and learn to cook healthier meals, I will combine this with cardiovascular exercise and some light weight training to tone and define my muscles.

Went hiking the other day as a date and

it was great fun! It is just such a fun way to keep active and all those steep hills are great for toning. I am going to buy a mini trampelline for my house so that I can exercise in front of the TV everyday and I have cut my portions slightly, now I will start introducing healthier alternatives into my diet. I am also going to start reading Skinny Bitch to motivate myself.
