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.

I now weigh 11 stone 9

Getting closer!
I fit into a pair of shorts that I haven’t been able to wear in years, plus almost all of my dresses fit me now! Only one left that’s still too small (my green spotty one).

I've lost almost two stone :)

I used to weigh 14 stone 1, now I’m 12 stone 3. Being sponsored to lose weight has been the motivation- otherwise I never would have managed to keep going for so long. My sponsored weight loss goal is 11 stone 1, but I’ll keep going afterwards until I’m 10 stone. I feel that I’m so used to it now that I could keep going quite easily. I really really want to be slim again! Getting there!!

Currently I weigh 14 stone

So 4 stone to lose!
I’m only going to weigh myself once a week, so I don’t get so obsessive over it. So every Thursday from now on.

I’m walking much more now, I walked an hour on Monday, all day round devil’s dyke on Tuesday and halfway home yesterday. Went swimming on Sunday too. I’m not feeling so lazy and unmotivated any more :)

See all entries ...
