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.

lose 40 pounds (read all 2 entries…)
Change of lifestyle.

What works for me when I need to lose weight is to change my lifestyle. In 2009, I discovered fasting. I would recommend doing a very healthy fast four times a year. Once a quarter.

Here’s a few types
1. Spiritual Fasting (you can give up a few food addictions, and replace it with reading the bible (or spiritual texts), praying (or meditating) for 40 days … or until you receive a specific spiritual answer. Some people abstain from food all together from sun up until sun down.
2. Juice fasting. (Does not work with most store bought juice) For me, this is for health or detox reasons only. Personally, I didn’t lose any weight on a juice fast. But I think it’s great for your health.
3. Master Cleanse… It is risky… but you will lose weight (mostly water weight). I would recommend using the cleanse to kick something out of your diet. The only way you will keep the weight off is if you CHANGE your diet after you finish the cleanse. Otherwise, you’ll just go back to normal if nothing changes.

Little things like walking as much as possible, taking the stairs as much as possible. Go a very long way.

Be wary of medications that fuck with your thyroids and change your metabolism.

The main thing is to change the lifestyle.

And breastfeeding does help you burn calories.
