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.

GeraldineBig setback... but will not give up!

This seems to be a year of extreme stress and working under pressure. So, as a result, the past month hasn’t been my healthiest. Resorted to eating a lot of junk food (KFC, McDonald’s, and the likes), was even less active than normally, and apart from gaining another 2 – 3 kg (I’m now at 75 comma something! More than I weighed on 1 January 2014) I feel generally unhealthy.

So – I have signed up on for his 100% health challenge (at a subscription paid in British pounds…) to help me set goals towards a healthier and thinner me. According to the health report generated after a very in depth questionnaire, I am a full 25kg overweight but could manage to lose this in 23 weeks’ time. Not too sure about this – I always hear about the figure of 500g (0.5 kg) per week as a guideline for safe and sustainable weight loss – would be interesting to hear what others think?

Also want to go back to the gym, today still, for a 30 min cardio workout on the treadmill, stationary bike, row machine and eliptical trainer.

Hope to hear from other people in the same position as me and/or people who have done this and any advice they have to offer!

Wish me luck! 1 day ago

qianxianghanBelieve it or not, I got a cough today in this hot summer. And when I got in office, there was no air-condition.

Actually, no air condition is really a good thing for me now, since I got a fever and didn’t feel hot at all. 1 day ago

Weighed 70kg on friday, well fed and hydrated, weighing myself every 2 weeks in fed/hydrated condition.
Next time is Tuesday 5th of august, aiming to be under 69kgs

I’m focusing on developing habits of eating at least 5 cups of vegetables a day, and 300g meat(protein) as a way of achieving this – Maintaining that for the rest of July will become a ‘goal’ too. 2 days ago

ginaw117515Lbs gone

I haven’t been watching the scales closely but have just been watching my nutrition. Lately I found a really great program and have gone from 190lbs to 175lbs in less than a month. I feel great, I have energy and I am finally living life! 1 week ago
