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.

- The Robots.

i can relate

hey thanks for your comment. it helped a lot. so i’ve gone back and forth with being ana and mia depending on where i’ve been living and the best way to become ana is to go from mia to ana slowly. not too slow. in like a week or five days. it’s too hard to just start and not mess up for a lot of people so start spacing out your meals way more and eating less and less and still purging after until you’re hardly eating anything to the point where it wouldn’t be worth purging. then stop purging and just start being ana. when you feel hungry drink ice water cause your body has to use more calories to warm it up and also whenever you catch yourself wanting to eat, you can pinch the part of your body you hate most and think of how fat you’d get if you ate. worked for me.

hope this helps some. again. thanks for your advice. let me know how it goes.
