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.

Harmless Dilettante What I should have said was nothing.

Day 12 (Second Week, Fifth Day)

July 16, 2012: Monday: 185
Net: -3 Pounds
Daily Calorie Total: 1821

Next Goal: August 12, 2012: 179.5; -5.5 to go and 26 more days to get it done.

Mysteriously went back up half a pound. It’s probably just water weight, but I also didn’t ride Saturday or Sunday. We went out to lunch with friends on the one and I over slept on the other. This week, I’ll try harder to ride on Friday and one weekend day in addition to my scheduled Monday through Thursday lessons.

Since I’ve now gotten through eleven entire days on my diet without cheating, I think I deserve a reward. I’ve decided that every Monday morning, if I’ve done a good job staying at or below my 1800/day mark and riding six days per week for the previous Monday through Sunday, I’ll get myself a little something. I’m leaning towards a new pair of reins for Ferra as her current pair need to have the rubber resewn.
