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.

Hey all, I've been gone a long time

I think I’m pretty much done with this goal. I have not been on a diet as such, just eatting normally and maintaining my weight. It’s been 2 months and I haven’t put on weight.

Well I tell a lie, I’ve just got back from holiday and I stuffed myself every day with rubbish, due to it been all inclusive that means FREE food and beer Yahooo. I’m so glad I lost all that weight, I still felt fat (well maybe chubby) while on holiday, but I felt much better than I did 3 years a go when I last went on holiday. My new aim is to look how I want to look by next years holiday.

Any wya I put on 2.5 pounds which was fun. But still my BMI is in the normal range and I’m feeling healthy. My main aim now is to lose body fat, rather than “weight” as a general turm.

I’m kinda on the thinking that BMI is a little 2 general once you get down to healthy, but it does make a very good guide and target to aim for if you are over weight, or more importnantly if you are unhappy with your weight.

I’m still going to leave this goal open, as I like adding comments and I’ll proberbly add more now that I’m trying to lose bodyfat again.

Good luck all, and Hi :)

Done and Dusted

Well it’s all over. I’ve sold my old house and moved into my new one. All I have to do now is pay the increase in my mortgage payments and get all my belongings in the right place.

Yay for moving.

Good luck to everyone else

Another week. Another 1lb (In the wrong direction)

Can you tell from the title what I’m gonna say? Lets see if you can…

Well my weight this morning was 167lbs

However I have to point out, I ate very well last week, and I worked out at the gym 6 times. 3 Cardio sessions and 3 Weight lifting and did a 4 mile run on sunday morning. All my Gym sessions are at least a hour long and I push my self everytime. So I definatly didn’t put on Fat.

I got some of the body fat calipers to test my BF% I did the 3 point test and my body fat percentage is now 21%

20% is classed as the healthly range. Whaooo Me. I’m almost healthy in BF% and I am in BMI.

Micky Out for another week.
Good luck all
