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.

Well see here's the deal

I was blessed with a fast metabolism. I’ve never had to work at being skinny. I just am. (Minus my “fluffy” that comes from my lack of exercise.) If I exercised even a little, I could probably be tone and cut. But I hate to exercise. So I live with the little tummy I have, and am completely happy with the rest of me.

The only kind of exercise I really have ever engaged in was dancing. I LOVE to dance but haven’t been actively doing so. (Dance classes – not club dancing!)

BUT lately my body has said ENOUGH BAD FOOD… I am feeling bogged down and just plain gross. And as much as I don’t want to exercise and eat healthy – my body is kind of making me at this point. I feel terrible otherwise and have no energy.

I just joined a dance team – and since I LOVE to dance, I figure this is a great opportunity to get in shape. Practices don’t start till the middle of March – but I have 4 hour practices every Saturday. That should make me feel better. (Although I’m sure after the first few I will HURT LIKE HECK!) I’m super duperly excited though, cuz what better way to get in shape then by doing what you love!
