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.

The buffet at college has hardly helped my waistline…and the food is actually pretty good! It took me a bit to gather my self-discipline and remind myself that while no one is going to stop me from having bacon at breakfast and two cookies at lunch, that doesn’t mean it’s okay.
Then Thanksgiving happened. I was able to mostly resist the mashed potatoes and pecan pie, but the potato rolls and cheesecake sampler were calling to me. Nomnomnom.
Tomorrow afternoon after lab I’m hitting the gym.

Back to the start

Spring break was definitely not the healthiest (at least it was a load of fun!) but I need to get back on track. I think this will be easier when I’m not studying and stressing out for exams…Has anyone tried P90X? What do you think of it for weight loss and/or for building muscle?

Three down

and seven to go! This is easier than I expected.

I’m drinking a LOT of water, especially before meals. It helps take the edge off if you’re hungry.
Slightly smaller portion sizes, but not too small before exercise, because passing out is no fun.

And…a DELICIOUS icecream substitute I found in another 43Thinger’s entry (whoever it was, thank you!):
unsweetened Greek yogurt + spoonful of raspberry preserves + chopped roasted almonds + a little agave nectar = light pink heaven in a bowl
