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.

HO’ MY GAWLLL TODAY I TRIED ON PANTS THAT ARE A SIZE SMALLER THAN I USUALLY WEAR AND THEY ACTUALLYFIT! D: D: D: D:

HOLY MOLY I’M EXCITED.

(hence the capslock) XD



15 to go!

Woo hoo! Weighed myself this morning and it’s official! 10 lbs are GONE!! c: It really motivated my workout this morning. Gotta remember that I’ve gotten here many times though.. so, sticking to it is what counts.



..........

I’m not going to feel pathetic for having this goal on here so long.

Okay, so I do, a little bit. Or a lot bit. D:

But I’m not going to be updating weekly anymore. It obviously doesn’t help me stay on track and when I look back and see how many weeks I went back and forth and back again, I just get pissed at myself and sort of discouraged, actually.

I’m pleased that the holidays are over for the simple fact that food and drinks are so rampant at that time of year.. but it’ll come around every year and I can’t use that as an excuse to gain 5-10 lbs. So, hopefully I’ll have my shit figured out by the end of this year.

I haven’t proven myself so far, but it’s never too late to do that, so.. I will accomplish this goal this year.



Wednesday Update #17 (whoops... so forgetful)

So my idiot crap is definitely showing on the scale… Slackin’ on exercise and losing all sense of discipline equals weight gain, apparently. Ugh. So, I’m at 174.6 lbs.. TT A TT Noo.. this feels so lame. Been at this for 17 weeks now. Pretty much haven’t accomplished shit. Ugghhhhhhhhh Ihatemyselfrightnow.



Damnit. I'm being an idiot.

Guysssss~ Why have I been buying pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks everyday? I get a tall, but they’re still like 300 calories and then one of my co-workers have been baking cookies and they smell so fresh and taste so good and I have like, 3 and even though I know what I’m doing I just keep doing it and I’m just venting to vent right now and getting pissed at myself for fucking shit up for these past 3 days! GLLAARRGGHHH!!

ahem.

ANYWAY. I need to put my foot down and stop giving into the deliciousness of pumpkin spice lattes. I also have to stop feeling like I HAVE to eat cookies/brownies/whatever the fuck my coworker bakes and wants to share, no matter how delicious they look.

I have a hard time refusing things like that because they’re so excited (one of my coworkers is trying out new cookie recipes every week and plans to do so until Christmas.. FML.) And I hate being that bitch who says shit like, “Sorry, I’m on a diet/watching what I eat/don’t want your fucking cookies.”



Monday Update # 16

170.8 lbs!!!! Didn’t get down into the 160s like I’d hoped to, but I got pretty fuckin’ close. I will definitely be there next week. :D Yay! EXCITED.



Monday Update #15

Just a quickie update! 174.6 lbs… After a whole weekend of Halloween parties, sweets and drinking, I don’t think I did too bad. :D I’m going to up my water intake and really focus on discipline as far as my food.

I do the best with that when I prepare my meals for work ahead of time and since I’m off today, I’m going to make a ton of turkey meatballs [recipe] to have for lunch all week! c:

(psst—my mini goal for Monday is to hopefully be in the 160’s! ;D)



Monday Update #14

Mission accomplished! Weighed myself this morning and I was at 172.6 lbs! So I’m pretty excited and can completely forget about that horribleness from last week. :D



Monday (Thursday) Update #13

Sooo I’m way behind by updating this on Thursday.. but.. I was pretty depressed on Monday and couldn’t bring myself to admit to my horribleness until now. :(

Soooooo my little sister was in town this past weekend. Lots of drinks and bad choices in food later.. I weighed 175.2 lbs on Monday. TT A TT I was soo mad because I was thinking how EASILY weight goes on and how it takes forever to come off! WHY? GRRR. But!!! I gotta say, I went right back into eating well and exercising Monday after she left (it was rough since I was so dehydrated) but I weighed myself this morning (oops XD) and the scale said 173.4 lbs. Soo… I guess it is helping that I’ve been working out for these past 2-3 weeks. c: Hopefully I’m back at the 172ish range for this coming Monday and I can just pretend this week never happened. XD



Monday Update #12

172.8 lbs. Ugh, this weightloss is happening really slow this time around….. BAH. Oh well, weightloss is weightloss!
