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.

Raven I've got to get away

lose weight (read all 36 entries…)

I lost about 20 pounds the first quarter and then decided to quit smoking. Chocolate Milk Shakes were my reward mechanism – Doh! No I have to start over.


Fat-Free Chocolate Milk
(yes, fat-free. gotta stay slim)
is the smartest thing to drink after a workout.
According to Roberta Anding, RD, a sports nutritionist at Rice University, milk is an excellent recovery food since it has the carb-to-protein ratio you need and Cocoa beans contain antioxidants, which help with muscle repair.

I read it in a heath magazine.
so, just leave out the ice cream and you can still get that reward.

wish you luck with the weight loss.

An acceptable chocolate substitute . . .

Unsweetened Chocolate Soy Milk. Ok, it really is not the same. But it cures the crave with 1 gram net carb. And if it is really cold . . .
