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.

Safe, healthy weightloss

Losing weight has a simple equation, eat less calories then your body needs and the weight will melt off. The most effective, safest and healthiest way to do this is to exercise and control your diet. You should aim to burn between 500Kcals to 1000Kcals per day. Beware though because if you burn more than 1000 calories per day, you will lose muscle, not fat and muscle helps burn that fat. Also do not attempt starving yourself as this will slow down your metabolism and 10% of the food you eat is used to digest the food you’ve eaten. Low carbohydrate diets can cause illness as carbohydrates fuel muscles and give you energy. Protein diets are also dangerous because if you eat too much protein, your body enters a process called ketosis. This damages your muscles and bones. Aim to eat a balanced diet and always try to get your 5 fruit and veg a day.
