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.

Weigh 140 lbs (read all 4 entries…)
getting sued for custody did it

Haha… just kidding! Sort of…

True, I lost 19 lbs within a month of getting hit with a child custody trial that I was not emotionally or financially prepared for (is anyone really prepared for something like that?) but I gained 10 lbs back, thank God. People were starting to worry about me because I was getting too thin.

I am under 140 but I realize that 135 is my ideal weight. I am 139 now. Sounds dumb to worry about 4 lbs, but I carry my weight around my hips and it just looks funny with a tiny upper body. My ass is and has always been much larger than the rest of my frame, but that’s ok. When my ass starts to grow sideways, that’s when I know it’s time to check the scale.
