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.

Failed again

Why can’t I get my eating under control!!!!! :(

Over the hump?

So it is the start of day 4 of my 21 day clean eating before Christmas. Saturday night was so close to caving in and having wine and a biscuit but no I went to bed instead! Yesterday I had some breakfast cookies using just banana and oats and sultanas and they only take 10 mins in oven and are delicious. I am not going to weigh myself till the 20th December the scales hVe been hidden. This week exercise will consist off…...

3×45min spin classes
6×45 min walks to work
7 x weights

Food wise just continue to eat no junk
But do have two meals out this week so damage limitation


Breakfast cookies(homemade)
Lunch soup
Dinner chicken salad
Snacks apple

Day two

Really craving bad things…... Must stay strong! X

Positive...... Come on!!!!

I need to stop moaning about being fat then eating crap and expecting anything to change!

There for tomorrow well technically today I am going to start a 21 day detox ( as it’s Christmas in 3 weeks 5 days and I want a big roast with all trimmings)

My start weight is 8st 7
I hope to lose 8lbs and be under 8st (just) for the first time in 2 over 2 years.

I am not going to weigh myself until the the 20th December

I can do this!!!

Total weight that I need to lose is just under a stone

More ramblings from me later :)

Feeling lost

I have been doing this whole weight loss gain yo-yo thing for years ….. To many years. I have got to the point where I need to get it done. I have problems with binge eating but I exercise a lot so that’s something.

So I need to between 14 – 21lbs I will write everyday to justify to myself


Had really bad jet lagg so slept most of the day but got up did some weights no cardio though :(

Food wise

Apple juice -92
Soup. – 302
Banana. – 100

Total. 494

Now I kno this ain’t enough but travelling makes me really bloated and well let’s just say my stomach stays full :(

Will eat more tomorrow

get the feeling i have been here before!!

Its been bout 5 months since i last posted on here and suprise suprise i am still 8st 7!!!! i did manage to get down to 8st for my dads wedding back in september but have now regained 7lbs

i need to focus!!!

any one with about 10lbs – 1 stone to lose want a diet buddy???

stopping the moaning and doing something about it!

for the last 6 weeks i have been gradually gaining weight and have put on about 10 lbs!! ans the last couple of weeks i have noticed the bulge but instead of doing something i continued the vicious cycle of being sad about it eating more chocolate and cakes and getting bigger and so i decided enough is enough!!!! so i an on day 3 of a 28 day detox diet. I didnt write on day one as i wasnt sure whether i could get through the first day but i did and so onwards and upwards :)

i weighed myself on day one and was 8st 7 3/4 and i am going to not weigh myself till day its over so the 13th july. Im hoping for a 8lb loss to get me back on track.

maeinwaiting has gotten 21 cheers on this goal.
