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.

Still working on it, but I think I have crossed an important barrier. I can go shopping for clothes and not feel depressed at the end of the day. Yeah me.

Hard going but worth it

I have really been surprised at the difference just deciding to feel beautiful has made. I still have really low days, and sometimes I fake it, but it passes. I look in the mirror now, and most days I am not unhappy to see myself. No matter how I look, I focus on seeing me. I don’t focus on any part of me that I don’t like, I look at the person I see in front of me the way I look at the people I love, the way I look at my child. And I love her.
