lose your weight
My self 21 months ago
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.

So, I gained 4 lbs. in the last week (because of over-eating at parties). I know what happened: this time I pushed myself wayyy too far. Plus, I haven’t been able to start eating healthy again because I have cake practically being shoved in my face. I’m sure all the tea I’ve been drinking has helped me not get ABOVE 132 lbs. I mean, 132 lbs. is a healthy weight, but knowing that just last week I was 128 lbs. (and only 3 lbs. away from my goal) really hurts. So…I don’t know what I’m gonna do. There’s gonna be another party on Sunday.
Oh, and I started out my week by not getting enough sleep so I barely have any energy to work out (I haven’t worked out since Friday). 21 months ago
So it is Wednesday, my regular weigh-in day. I lost 1.4 lbs. since last week -
So now, I am 128.4 lbs. I have been binging a lot during the weekends because of parties and get-togethers (I ate over a pound of frozen yogurt on Friday…), but I think the exercise and tea and healthy eating afterwards has really helped balance things out. 128.4lbs. is the lowest weight I have been (since I stopped growing, of course), so I think I will be reaching my goal weight soon!! :) 22 months ago
Kay, so somehow I managed to stay at the EXACT same weight of 129.8 lbs., even after a weekend of non-stop eating. Obviously I wish I had lost a little more, but the fact that I didn’t gain is fantastic news so I’m good :P 22 months ago
So proud of myself. So far, I’ve managed to have lost five lbs. since last Wed. Half way there!!! :D 22 months ago
So I didn’t eat the healthiest yesterday, however I did manage to drink 9 cups of tea, so that should help. Also, I didn’t eat as much as I believe I did, so that’s good :) 22 months ago
I accidentally said I complete this already so I had to start over…Don’t have my old posts, not that it matters. 22 months ago
