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.

swizzles in Harrisburg is doing 19 things including…

100 points in the "Dashing all the Weigh" contest!


swizzles has written 6 entries about this goal

week 6 is over as of today!

i’ve earned 18 points this week and unless i weigh in at more than i should, i’ll win my tee shirt!!!

I'm going to lose weight and win my tee shirt!

As a result of this contest, i forced myself to go take a fitness class and have fallen completely in LOVE with Zumba.

I don’t remember my points, but this is the final week and I’m going to make it for sure, so as long as my weigh-in is under what it was when I started, I’m going to get EXACTLY 100 POINTS!

week 3 results!

ok so i earned:
3 points for 4 gym card scans
2 points for 2 strength sessions
5 points for 5-30 min. cardio sessions
5 points for 3 servings of fruit/veg. daily

15 points!

Week 2 results

12 points again! Well, I now officially must bust my butt if I’m going to make my mark. :) It’s ON!

Well, should b easier to get to the gym since I no longer have a job.

Week 1 results

I earned 12 points. I should have earned 15 but I didn’t get to the gym 4 times. crap! I could blame black friday exhaustion but I could have gone Saturday if I wanted to, I was being lazy.

I have, however, lost about 2 lbs. since the start of this!

88 points to go!

Oh I forgot to mention at the end, if I maintain my weight I get 5 bonus points, and if I lose weight, I get 10 points.

The premise:

My local YMCA is putting on this program. Each week, I can earn points as follows:

4 card scans (gym visits) per week = 3 points
2 aerobics classes = 3 points
2 aquatics classes = 3 points
2 strength sessions = 2 points
4-30 min. cardio sessions = 3 points
5-30 min. cardio sessions = 5 points
3 daily svgs. fruit/veggies = 5 points

100 points over 6 weeks (Nov. 23-Jan. 3) gets me a free t-shirt. oh big deal you might say, but to me, very specific targets for points gets me excited and committed.

what i’ve done so far is marked it all out on the calendar.

There’s a link to my set up, and progress.
