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.

wow I totally forgot about this goal. I think it will be a bit easier to do this. I have made a menu for the next two weeks so I already know what I am goign to eat. The reason that I made a menu is because I just started the south beach diet so I needed to know what groceries to buy.

First Day

First day of my log. I think that doing this is a really good idea. Today I had an apple and three crackers and I am going to have a can of soup for lunch and an orange for an afternoon snack and three more crackers for my after work snack. I don’t know what I am going to have for dinner yet. I am going to make a chart of my foods and the calories that they have. I also went to the gym for one hour.
