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.

Oh No!

My scale battery died. It had been reading Lo for a few weeks, but I finally decidedtotry to replace it when it recorded a 5 pound weight gain in 4 hours. (Ok so why was I weighing myself 4 hours apart is my little secret…and what not but).
SO. will weigh at work tonight or settle with not knowing until that wierd little round clock battery thingy is replaced.

26.8

this morning, but mostly that may be due to the intense dehydration I went through. Still, have not been eating very much and have started doing some running, sooo….perhaps I will soon be seeing 26.5 and below….

wierd

I am supposed at 27.1 now. But I feel that this is inaccruate. I have been unable to regularly stay at this weight for so long, I am wondering how I did it so easily this time, without exersise even. Mostly been sick and so been doing very little and eating little, since i don’t have any good stuff if you will in the house (Including my favorite bread with butter) I seem to be coming down, Now. Must start running this week again, since my cold is almost gone, and my appetite will surely rise sharply so we shall see. Not so sure I really am 27.1 Would love to see 26 point anything. for a full week or so.

0.1 gone

so now at 27.2 concerned because most loss has to do with being really too sick to eat….will it come back???

As evidence by my photo

I have gained quite a bit since my last entry, when I was fit as a fiddle, and ready to run a half marathon….then I fell, and hurt my fingers.
Well, that was almost a year ago. My finger pity party is over. I am at 27.3 Chunky Monkey. So, I’ve lost 3 pounds this week, and am hoping to remain in the losing pattern and by March maybe I can be at 25 again. Maybe.
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to lose any weight. I guess I just enjoy eating a lot! I don’t want to continue to look like this guy!

I know I’ve already completed this goal, but I still feel proud to say that I am now at 22.6. 144 and 5’7 which is better than before. (I was at 24.4 when I was 14, and according to the seventeen BMI calculator, that is at least a whole point over what a healthy 14-year old is. Now i’m well within the range for a 15-year old…but I’d like to be at 21.1

I've maintained my BMI

It’s not as low as I’d like it to be but despite a difficult year I can say I’ve maintained it under 25.

Now to lower it further.

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 :)
