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.

It’s been so long since I’ve been up here I have no idea what my last username was. Nevertheless, I have reverted back to so many old ways brought on by a serious bout of depression which built up over the nearly 4yrs I’ve been back in the small county where I grew up. I wouldn’t have thought I’d be where I’m at considering everything I had accomplished but I will assume it means I still had a deeper lesson to learn.
That being said, I haven’t completed the Master Cleanse faithfully in about 5yrs. Yea, I’m not too happy to admit that but I think a lot has to do with my settling for where I was and feeling like I didn’t have to be any better than that. Boy was I ever wrong! Here I go again and still can’t say honestly, right at this moment, that I KNOW I’m going to make it for my goal period. I do know I’m going to give it 110% since I’ve averaged well below 75% as of late in my life.
Tonite I start with the original Smooth Move which has been seeping for close to 24hrs now. I like the peppermint and chocolate Smooth Moves as well just because I like to mix it up. I tend to do the same with the Lemonade, sometimes choosing the Lime instead just to break the monotony. I believe in making sure that half my body weight in ounces of water is also downed daily. I will start off with a gallon of water/day just to round it all out.
I like starting out Day 1 without the lemonade just to get in a good elimination based water fast. Exercise is definitely a focus during this time because I’m very familiar with how it can aid in toxins being released as well. Energy is at such a high level during the cleanse, there shouldn’t be any apprehension about moving forward according to my strategy.

I am glad to be doing this again on 43things.com. It really does offer a way to be held accountable when you are doing it alone. I’m committed to chronicling the journey in its entirety here- 21 Days. My fingers are crossed. Til Tomorrow…

*Tip 1: If you think you have to pass gas and you haven’t been too long downed the SWF, STOP and head to the toilet. It’s not pretty if you happen to be mistaken.
