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.

On the tightrope - again

Began a new regimen on Thursday. Notable only, perhaps, for the fact that I have company. Three of us at the office are doing this eating plan – The Carb Sensitivity Diet by Dr. Turner
I fear that any attempt by the author to inject some ‘style’ into the weekly menu is doomed to fail with me. As with so many others making decent meals, I am deep in Prep:Peeling, chopping and seeding. Weighing and measuring are the order of the day – no more taking off the wrapper or opening the bag!


Lose weight...ugh

that’s a big one for a lot of us. Don’t really know anything about you, but I do know that the alkaline diet is a sure way to get healthy and lose weight. You can pretty much eat as much as you want-following this. It is not a diet, but a way of life-a change of diet to be more precise. I have been on this diet before, and am struggling to get on it again. the chemo has changed so much in me. Before I started the chemo I would have never put the things in my mouth that I have been. Anyway, this is just food for thought. Don’t go on a diet, but make a life change. When I was eating healthy the standard joke was that “that was my favorite when I use to eat that kind of junk!” Actually, it is not junk, but poision to the body. No matter what you do with diet I wish you the best of luck. Losing weight was easy when I changed my diet to eating healthy. I ate tons, and I rarely exercised. I saw a think on youtube about a guy who was nearly four hundred pounds. He was on 17 kinds of medications. The doctors told him he was dying. He went on a raw foods diet. He liked that because he could eat all that he wanted. Within six weeks he was off his meds and the doctors were still telling him he had to take the meds, even though his vitals returned to normal, he was losing weight, he felt fabulous, and had more energy than he ever had. If I can find this again I will post it!

Lagniappe has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
