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.

look good in a bikini
Starting over

Hey everyone,
So I’ve been working on losing weight. I’ve lost about 30 pounds. I had lost about 35 pounds, but then I gained some of it back, and I hadn’t even made my goal yet! So I’m getting myself back on track. I was reasonable with the food today. I didn’t count calories, and it was probably a little high cause I went out to dinner, BUT I only ate at my three meals, and I didn’t eat anything when I got home (which can be my downfall… I live in a dorm with a vending machine and lots of crap around all the time). Anyway, summer’s a coming, and I want to lose about 20 more pounds to reach my ultimate goal, but I’m just not sure how much more I have to lose to look good in a bikini…. Hmmm. I’m 5’4.5”, about 155 lbs and about 21-22% body fat.
Peace all!
