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.

Lose Weight and Get Healthy (read all 15 entries…)
Lighter Plans

I’ve made the internal decision to live a healthier life with hopes of losing weight in the process.

Some of my decisions will include:
Bringing a lunch instead of buying one whenever I can;
Eating meals to satiate hunger instead of out of boredom;
Cutting back on soft drinks to only special occasions, then completely- something I did in the past with great success but would like to continue;
Taking public transit as much as conveniently possible;
Cutting back on computer screen time;
Taking the stairs over the elevator whenever possible;
Cutting back on desserts and sugar not only for the benefit of my waistline, but for my teeth
Maintaining a diet free of beef with the exception of beef broth, cuz man, I love me some French onion soup;
Remembering to take my medications on time;
Maintaining a regular sleep cycle

That’s just a few I can think of off the top of my head. Some may help me lose weight or keep weight off, and that’s fine with me. I can live a life without sodas or steaks if it means I keep off 15-20 unnecessary pounds! Once I start feeling healthier again, I would like to take up jogging or bicycling for exercise possibly.
