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 2 Yuck

Okay, I’ve eaten tuna until I think it’s gonna come out of my nose. I think I may have over done it yesterday on carbs like, I may have had 30 instead of 20 but, thats pretty impressive to me. It’s weird tho, b/c as soon as I was done eating, I was hungry again. I think it’s all in my head. Today, for lunch I’m gonna go to Golden Corral and get some things to go. I’m thinking grilled chicken breast and spinach. Maybe even a salad b/c on this diet you can have whole ranch dressing, not that fat free junk. So I think today will be better than yesterday. Day 1 down 13 to go!!

Day 1 of 14

I am tired of being such a fat ass. Low self asteem sux. I have been thin before (110 lbs) and I felt great. I had energy and a high that only good self asteem can give you. I loved myself. Somehow, the fat just creeped up on me and I am now a whopping 165!!! No more!! For breakfast this morning I had tuna salad and a diet soda. Now I know in induction you are not supposed to have diet soda, but I’ve done some research and found that only some people have negative results. If that happens I guess I will have to stop drinking it, but the thought of drinking water with every meal makes me sick a little. The beginning is always the hardest part, but I believe in myself. I can do this!!!!!!! After I finish this phase (14 days) I can decide whether to stay on this diet or not. I want to lose atleast 6 lbs in 2 weeks, which I think is reasonable. If I actually do complete this challenge I can finally cross something off of my 43 things list. So in conclusion to my long ass entry Day 1 of 14, I can do this!!!!


I want to:
