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.

I don't see myself as a vain person...

but I’ve started to be a bit annoyed with my “belly”.

I’ve always wanted to get a flat stomach, but now I want it to happen RIGHT NOW.

The thing is that there’s only 2 weeks left before our wedding, and the dress I’m going to wear is very beautiful, but it also tend to emphasize my belly. And – well – I don’t want to make a big deal out of this wedding-thingy – but still I really really want to look my best. Susanne said to me that “no matter what you will always look beautiful at your own wedding”, and I see her point – but still…

I can’t really figure out if my weight-loss have affected my belly, actually I can’t really see the big difference, but I guess that comes from looking myself in the mirror everyday.
I know that something has happened, the dress Im’ going to wear didn’t fit me half a year ago, so no doubt that about thar.

I know that I can’t get a flat stomach in 2 weeks, but I can always try ;-)
So: Sit-ups, sit-ups and more sit-ups :-)


I should take some pictures of my lovely belly so I can compare it and see if anything is actually happening?

My “diet” thingy will hopefully help me to get rid of the small “bump”, and maybe I should also focus on some more sit-ups and stuff like that?
