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.

This worked!

I have been fast food free for a month! I am checking off this goal! It feels great and I make much healthier choices now. I don’t even factor fast food into the equation when choosing what to eat :)

Stacy 4 Fast Food 1

This is the third week I’ve been fast food free! One more week to go and I can check off this goal. Another good thing is that I think I can start exercising again (slowly). Just enough to get everything moving and not sit around so much.

Stacy 3 Fast Food 1

As of right today, I’m still fast food free! I think that’s two weeks. My eating habits are getting better and I’m eating less. I think I can mark this goal completed if I’m free of fast food for one month.

Stacy 2, Fast Food 1

Okay. I was proud of myself on Monday because instead of getting fast food on our way to the airport, we got Subway. I love their veggie delight! So I am back on track and ready to rock this!

Stacy 1, Fast Food 0

I haven’t eaten fast food for a week now. This is harder for me than it sounds because I just had surgery and I can’t really cook for myself. Anyway, I am considering it one step closer to victory!

Already making compromises..

Now, I have stipulations on this one. I can eat fast food if it’s healthy (ie. Subway, salads etc). I just want to stop eating fish sandwiches, french fries, all that crap.
