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.

momof2sons is tired!

lose weight (read all 2 entries…)

I still haven’t lost much weight. I’m still on BP meds, but I haven’t developed diabetes. I got denied for weight loss surgery by my husband’s insurance company. By the time I went through the appeals process and got approved, my husband lost his job and the insurance that went with it. So now I’m back to losing it the old fashioned way: sweating and starving. I am considering going to Dr. Weight Loss and taking a boat load of pills to lose some weight really quickly and then losing the rest slowly. My writing class teacher recommended Alli. I don’t eat a lot of fatty foods so it might help. And it would be cheaper. At BJ’s a 2 month supply is $60. Dr. Weight Loss costs about $200. So I don’t know. I’m thinking about Weight Watchers again, but I don’t have $40/month or the time to attend meetings. I’m sick of the commercials actually. Honestly, I’m tired of commercials with celebrities saying, “If I can do it, so can you!” Really? Sure, I could do it if I had nannies taking care of my kids so I could have 5 hours/day to train with my personal trainer, and eat specially cooked meals that my personal chef cooks for me. I want to be healthy again, that’s important. But I also want to be cute for my 20 yr reunion which is 2 yrs away.
