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.

Joyfully Become a Healthy Eater (read all 38 entries…)
No, really, seriously...

I want to eat healthy again because I always seem happier when I eat healthy, exercise, and get sleep. What better time to reset my palate and body than the new year?

I watched an episode of Dr. Oz with Alton Brown. I love how Alton Brown lost all his excess weight, especially since he, like me, loves food. I suck at diets, so I avoid them. I always try to add good nutritional food and avoid bad stuff, which is usually easy when I remember. Anyway, I liked how Alton simplified his nutritional plan and emphasized that he likes to eat food that tastes good. Yum! I love veggies, so I think I will try to put his plan into action.

He has four lists that seem simple enough. Let me see how it works… I’ll try to incorporate daily eats first and phase in the others.

1. Daily Eats: Fruits, Whole Grains, Leafy Greens, Nuts, Carrots, and Green Tea.

2. Foods To Eat 3 Times A Week: Oily Fish, Yogurt, Broccoli, Sweet Potato, and Avocado.

3. Foods To Eat 1 Time A Week: Red Meat, Dessert, Pasta and Alcohol

4. Zero Times A Week: Fast Food, Soda, Processed Meals, Canned Soups and “Diet” Anything
