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.

so its really not going that well. i really want to do it but i get bored and when i get bored i eat. and i cant seem to bring myself to go to the gym when i get bored. there is nothing worse than feeling like this. i am sure there are others who feel exactly like me- is there some website that people recommend for people who cant seem to bring themselves to start their diets… its always tomorrow for me!


Today, i started my research- magazines, websites, etc. I am going to be much less strict on myself than I have been in the past. I will aim for 2 pounds a week and I’m going to do it the healthy way.

I bought some magazines and created a chart and a system of points. Every time I exercise or do some sort of activity i get a point. Every time I add to an exercise routine, I get a point-that kind of thing. when I have a certain number of points I can reward myself. To keep track of my progress I bought a small pocket book so I can write down what I eat, the approximate number of calories that I eat and burn…

Hopefully by the time summer arrives, I will feel great to start my new job!

My diet starts first thing tomorrow morning!
