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.

Weighed myself at the gym last night .....

and I’ve lost 3lbs. Whooo-hooo thats 10% of my target!


So far I’ve devoured a banana and an apple had two cups of coffee and a tea. I hasten to add I never have milk or sugar in my tea or coffee.

Lunch a can of Chicken in a white sauce. Okay the protein is probably good for me but the calorie and salt content of the sauce certainly wasn’t.

This afternoon I had one of those liquid yoghurts, 250 calories.

Today really isn’t a good day for my diet as I’m also off out for dinner later with a friend.

I’ll do my penance in the gym tomorrow morning.

Went to the gym last night for the first time in 14 months.....

and got weighed :o( I turns out I’m heavier than I thought I was :o(( I’m 100kg or 220lb or 15 stone 7lb. I’m determined to lose at least a 14lb by the end of November as I have a race to run

My diet so far today ...

Breakfast was a 25g breakfast bar weighing in at 89 kCal. An apple mid-morning. A tin of french onion soup 355 kCal and a bread roll (probably about another 100 kCal). All washed down with 3 cups of coffee. For dinner I had chicken with vegetables in a tomato sauce with a slice of bread (note to self: cut down on the carbs) followed by a sweet of apricots and yoghurt.

I've made a pact with JC

We’re both going to get together for a day in November (we’re very lucky if we get to see each other once a month) and we’ve both made a pact that our diets start Monday (17 August 2009) and that we’ll shed a few pounds by the time we meet.
