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.

Day 5

I actually did give in the other day, and went to Wendy’s, but I think I’m doing very well. I’ve been eating way to much pizza but I think my calorie intake has definately dropped. I’m hoping to lose all of this weight I’ve been putting on the last two years. Hopefully I’ll be in my size 5’s again in no time.

Day 3

So I don’t know if this counts or not but my boyfriend brought a pizza over and I had a few slices. I feel awful, but now I’ll just have to work that much harder.

Day 2 Still No Fast Food

I cooked breakfast again and it was good. I miss my crossant but, for my health and my weight, I need to stop eating out. I visited this site about fast food yesterday. There are crazy amounts of calories in fast food. I knew it was bad for me, but I had no clue how bad. If anyone has lost weight by not eating fast food plz let me know.

Still Day 1

Right about now is usually when I’m at the drive thruu window at Wendy’s, getting my huge burger and greasy fries. It is really difficult right now, to fight my cravings. But I went grocery shopping earlier so I’ll just make me a ham sandwich instead. 2nd craving of the day, still going on. It’s weird to realize your appetite can control your life.

Day 1 No Fast Food

I usually eat breakfast at burger king, and instead, I actually cooked breakfast. It was awesome. The downside is that I had pancakes which is probably no better for me, but you gotta start somewhere.
