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.

Well Well Well....

....I’ve been very good at sticking to around 1200kcals a day, plus fitting in an hours workout on my crosstrainer/demon machine and burning off around 500kcals. I’m seeing results very slowly but surely, but I did something earlier that is unprecedented…

....I had my breakfast at around 9am, and at 10:30am REALLY wanted some cheese on toast (Sundays are my day off the crosstrainer, but not my diet). I decided to compromise with myself and didn’t include the cheese. So I popped 2 pieces of toast on, buttered them sparingly – then only ate a few bites before I took them both back into the kitchen, where they have grown cold and inedible.

Hopefully this is a good sign of my self-motivation kicking in, and a sign that I am making better choices for myself :)

Hope everyone else is making those good choices, Good Luck for today!
