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'm baaack.

Hi guys. I’m back faster than I thought I would be. My situation is much better now than it was about 5 days ago. It seems like ages since I last wrote, but it was only thursday. My friends and everyone on 43things have been so supportive and kind to me. I don’t know where I would be without them <3.

The problem is, while I have been gone, I have been eating junk like a pig, and not really caring what I ate. Problem. I gained about 3 pounds in 5 days, putting me, once again, 5 pounds away from my goal. Poop. Yesterday I started softball camp though, and we do softball-type activities for about 5 hours a day, which according to the daily plate, burns 1,191 calories! It kind of makes up for the awful eating I have been doing, because I have camp for the next 2 weeks. Fun!

Today I Ate a Ton!
B: 100 calorie pack of cookies ( I found it in my friends bag :D)
L: A green salad with a light italian dressing, a Kid’s Mix from quaker, a few bites of peach, and a water bottle.
S: (This is where I was so awful) a bag of sour patch watermelon, two 8-inch churros, and some brownie. Later I ate 4 chocolate chip cookies as well!
D: Half a slice of pizza.

Today’s total came out to be: 1,596 calories, according to the Daily Plate . com (A new site that I am using that I positively ADORE! Anyone looking for a good weight tracking site, go here, its amazing!)

But I burned a ton of calories with camp, from sweating in the sun and doing drills, so I guess its okay with the awful day. But I want to be down to my target weight by the end of the summer! Tomorrow I will plan out my meals, as to avoid overeating.

See you guys later!

xoxo, H.
