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.

summer of '07

gpa of 2.75



lose 65 pounds by February 25th 2009 (read all 23 entries…)
Untitled

3.4 more pounds gone. Lowest weight in a year. Since I began my measurements 2 years ago, my hips are tied with my lowest. My chest is about an inch away from my lowest and my waist is about an inch and a quarter from the lowest. I have lost a total of 4 inches from my hips, 2.75 inches from my waist and 2 inches from my chest.

I am pretty happy, but have realized my lack of exercise the past couple of weeks has really stunted my potential progress. Now for my excuse. I started summer school 3 weeks ago, which is 8 hours a day 4 days a week and I work 12 hours the other 3 days. I feel blessed that I am able to get up every morning and actually pack something somewhat healthy for my day, and find it damn near impossible to even think about anything else. My goal for my 3 remaining weeks of summer school is to workout at least 4 days a week. I would like to use sparkpeople’s strength training program 2 days a week and incorporate some type of cardio the other 2 days. I really need to buckle down because of my minimal 2 week weight losses and I feel that any type of exercise is really going to change my body. It is funny how inspired I can be sometimes the day of my weigh-in. I feel like I can almost do anything for 2 weeks. The 2 week period until I weigh again.

I have been cheating...

but not in the way you may think. I have been sneaking scale peeks. This week, I have, on 3 seperate occasions, been the lowest I have weighed in over a year and even then it only lasted for 1 day. Tomorrow is my official weigh-in and measure and I can’t wait.
