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.

Getting There

I am still losing weight slowly on my low-carb diet. It’s been almost a year now since I began. I’ve gone down almost two sizes, and am now almost into a 10. To think I used to be a 16!

Anyone out there who is overweight and can’t understand why should try a healthy low-carb diet. For years I couldn’t figure out why I would consistently gain weight when I was a very diligent health food junkie who ate only about 1200 calories a day. Well, it was that nutritious oatmeal and cous-cous and whole wheat bread that was putting on my pounds. And, of course, that occasional whole wheat fig bar and Odwalla juice.

I now eat eggs, bacon, meat, sour cream, avacado and nuts and bake low-carb desserts. I have not gone hungry yet I have lost weight.

What’s I’m saying is that it worked for me. But—it will not work unless you have the will to cut out flour and sugar permanently. It’s hard, but worth it.
