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.

Kikipantsmcguffin cutting and swirling!

Cut refined sugar from my diet (read all 5 entries…)
I'm getting wise to you,..... Glucose!!!

I’m super tired of my binge/abstain relationship to sugar and have a SOLUTION!

I’m going to quit cold turkey… (as vigilantly as i can within my own limits of undefined realism.)

Next month, month of June, i’m going to absolutely stop eating refined sugar as often as i can:

No:
Pop
Candy
Chocolate
Licorice
Ice Cream
Gelato
Cookies
Cakes
Mocha’s
Cupcakes
or other sweets

I’m going to binge on things that are marginally more healthy for me and get my sweet kick from

Fruit
100% Juices
Honey (local wildflower to help with my allergies)
and flavored teas such as vanilla.

Its going to be hard, but i can TOTALLY do it.

I have a sugar addiction.

I am tired of feeling wuzzy and tired and spacey from the kick

I’m tired of getting sugar high to make my day interesting.

My grandmother and my father have/had diabetes, its in my family and the likelyhood that i’ll have problems later on is high especially considering the scale of my sweet tooth! I’m going to cut those chances.

It does a much bigger number on my mindspace than i would like to admit, but here i am, admitting it.
