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.

down 4 lbs!

ok, so, this morning when I weighed myself, I was about 176 lbs. I am really excited about this, since I’ve continued eating “normally” and I’m still losing weight!

hope everyone else is having luck with their goals!


my little big goal.

trying to lose weight and recover from bulimia at the same time… actually it’s more turned into just binge eating this past month due to not purging it in anyway, so I gained weight. I eventually want to lose 55 lbs, I was 180 yesterday, but I figure if I aim for 5 to 10 lbs a month I can do it much healthier. so in 5 to 10 months I hope to be 125 lbs.

I have started eating breakfast, which I am not used to, and eating a better lunch (I used to eat about 6 oz of lettuce and tons of water) and then I’d always binge at night. but these past few days i’ve been really good with eating a good lunch and something at breakfast and eating a snack between dinner and bed (like applesauce or a popsicle).

anyway, my weigh days are going to be mondays, I’ve left the scale in the same place in the bathroom but am only going to weigh myself on mondays (I used to weigh myself before meals and after and after excersice, so once a week is challengeing so far!)

anyway, time for me to get to bed, work at 7am and its almost 1030pm, so I have to go to bed now or I really won’t want to get out of it in the morning!

good luck everyone else!

oh my email/msn is add me if you want!
