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.

12 weeks finished

I lost 3 lbs in 12 weeks – a very poor effort on my part. At this rate I will need a tummy tuck!

I did start going to ab fit classes but even those I have missed due to work commitments.

My boss suggested getting on to this machine that tones all your core muscles but its £25 pws. I could afford it but its the journey each week to do it that’s the snag.

Shame on me!

I haven’t been to class for weeks because I’ve not been Able to get away from work to attend them regularly enough.

The weight loss challenge

I am in week 4 of the challenge. So far I’ve lost 3 inches in total and 1.13% body fat.
Very pleased with myself but can see I will need to rectify the loose skin changes in my arms and legs and my overflowing muffin top well I hope I can tone it into shape because I sure don’t fancy a nip and tuck :(


Today I will write my 90 day weight loss challenge.

I’m really good with my food because I havent eaten processed/ convienience foods for a long time. I dont think food is a big problem of my weight.

I will need to keep a food diary for a week just to see where I’m going wrong and tackle it head on.

I plan to do a detox when times aree right to do it.

In the meantime I’m going to sort out meals that are light and healthy to eat, Ive seen some on the M&S ads that I like the look of as we dont have one locally then Im going to find recipes that match and cook them myself. I have a box of special K in the cupboard so better get a strat on that and see what this special K plan is all about.
