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.

Lose the wide calves and buy cute new boots

When you can't zip your knee high boots without a pair of pliers, it's time to diet.

I love me some big black boots. I mean L.U.V.

Seriously, I have dozens of pairs in various styles and heights. I feel kick ass when I wear my boots. I’m invincible, I’m smarter, I’m taller, I’ve got swagger in my step! Sliding into my boots is like stepping into liquid confidence and standing on sex appeal! Whew, I need a moment….

Boots were the one thing that no matter how much my pants size fluctuated (read: grew), I stayed a constant size in my boots. I could always count on that solid size 9. That is, until the past year or so.

Now my slightly meaty calves have plumped up even more. It’s to the point that I have several boots that I can no longer fit into. (Sniff, sniff to the patent stilettos, rocker chick motos, leather knee-high with buckles.) I think I’ve hit “rock bottom” now—I have had to return not 1 but 2!!! pairs of recently purchased awesome boots because they don’t fit over my gargantuan calves. I vowing to not seek out “wide calf”styles just yet. If it do that I might as well start buying mu-mus and invest in a Rascal, because if this is not motivation for me to drop some “lbs” and move my ass, then nothing is.
