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.

I weighed myself this weekend. I am now 216 lbs which is 36 lbs over my goal.
So I’m back to watching what I eat and I ran tonight and last night. I have to build the habits I need so I can really start getting to where i need to be.
this entry could go under a lot of categories. there is a lot of shit in my life that winds through a lot of things.
Slowly I’m recognizing and taking steps to fix them.
This will take a long time. There is a lot of shit here…


after starting, stopping and gaining weight i’m now back to 200 lbs my original starting weight.
I’m continuing to workout and eat with better habits.
