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.

151 ish

I weighed myself this morning and got weights ranging from 150-157. But I’m going for 151 as I think that’s fairly accurate. I want to be 145, realistically by march/april.

7- cookies

I’ve decided that cookies also count as they still require baking. I made white and milk chocolate chip cookies last week, and shared with work colleagues and last one gave to family. They were yummy.

pay off my mortgage (read all 4 entries…)

I know it is really nothing compared to the total I owe, but last night I made an overpayment of £100! That takes off a month, and reduces total by £233! So I have saved £133! Not bad for a couple of phonecalls. Plus even though they “advise” min payments of £500 it is not completely necessary so I will continue. Also August payment gone. So I now owe 118121

6- strawberry

So on Friday night my sister in law asked me to bake some pink cakes for my niece’s dedication service. So I made strawberry flavour cupcakes, with strawberry flavoured pink icing, then glittery pink sprinkles and a butterfly (shop bought) on top. They were yummy :)

I have now made 3 scheduled payments, and am slowly saving for a one-off payment. There’s just so many other things which are costing money at the moment! Every time I make a scheduled payment it takes approx. £85 off what I owe! yay! Only 417 ish payments left!

pay off my mortgage (read all 4 entries…)
To start

I think I owe at the moment including interest 119595 on a 35 year loan, monthly atm 285 on a 2yr fixed rate. I really want to do this and reading previous ppl who have done it have really inspired me. I think it will help hugely for me to know how much is left etc and see how it is being chipped away. Slowly but surely is the key here I feel. So I will check if my letter shows current balance remaining. And see if I can pay a bit extra off.
