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.

Ukh....i'm lazy!

Yes, I am lazy….
But exercising involves a lot of work.

A positive is that i’ve maintained 72kgs. Which is great, because it means half the goal was accomplished, that of losing the weight healthily, and keeping it off!

I’m going to work exercise back into my days.

I’m going to try very hard to do this very soon,
I won’t promise tonight because I’ve got more pressing issues,
But I will very very soon.


-3 is a nice number, i prefer the odds.

But I am quite bored of it! I’m still at 72 (-3 from the initial 75).
Mainly because i disregarded the urging whispers of my conscience to swim laps and instead opted to have cocktails on those lovely pool chairs whilst being subjected to tension relieving massages followed by nights of explosive partying and 9 hours of blissful sleep only to wake up and fall into that cyclical Tour de détente.

In other words, I was on vacay.

I am not exactly back on track…

Must fit in an hour of exercise.

Thanks for the reminder!

I am right on schedule..
But I believe it’s essential for me to actually document the weight loss…
Get over the shame that i do feel±
And just out with it.

2 weeks ago I was : 75 kgs.

right now I am 72 kgs

Goal : 65 kgs.


starting now..

this entire thing sounds scary to me. mainly because i refuse to start anything midday, but other goals call for this necessity.

my plan here is to lose the 10 kgs in the most healthiest way possible, so i am allocating 1 kg per week. Which i think sounds more than reasonable—-in 10 weeks, i should be 10 kgs lighter.

now given my current physical state, exercise is a problem. but i think an hour of cardio per day should do it for now.

a balanced diet , 10 glasses of water, and a bit of cardio should do the trick until my body’s up to par again.
