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 I have visibly lost weight and i down about 15 pounds from my biggest but when I stepted on the scale today I was up over 6 from 2 days ago whats wrong!!!!! I havent changed eating patterns or been bad or anything. Then I went for a physical to donate plasma and they said they though my thyroid was enlaged. I really dont want that but I will keep trying to lose weight the old fasion way. On the other end I have noticed an increase in energy since I have lost weight. YEAH


Well I am slowly losing but this refusal to step on a scale makes it hard to judge on the bright side i needed a belt to keep my “fat pants” on yes


Well this week has been good I think. I only had one day were I let myself go. But I always feel like I am eating too much. It doesnt matter what I eat. I may only have a salad with no fat dressing but it feels like too much. I hope this is just a passing stage or has something to do with working in fastfood and feeling like i have absorbed grease in my skin. who knows.

Time to try

So I am tryiung to lose weight to get my life on track. My Dad just had a heart attack a year ago at 45 and I am on the same path, I need to do something now. I have been losing slowly lately but am going though a major life change. I am worried that I will gain it all back. I need some support to make it though. If any one wants to help cher me on for my little goals great but if not thats ok too. I am going to write in here to help with the motivation. today I am over 200 actually about 228 i want to get to 170. I know I can do this. It will be hard though
