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.

Breaking the Fast

Okay so I could go on with this but it’s starting to feel pointless. Yes I am capable of going the extra 12 or so hours it would be to do a complete 48 hrs but I just fail to see the point. I don’t know that I would do this again. I don’t really treat my body so bad that I need days and days to detox. So I am going to break my fast by eating a tangerine now maybe some more fruit later today, and then some fruit and veg tomorrow then I will add grains and proteins on Monday.

So the knowledge that I gained from this experience is that I can say no to food when I’m not really hungry and that sitting at the computer for long periods of time makes me want to mindlessly eat.

24hrs in....

I was really hungery before bed last night and had a massive headache. When I awoke this morning those symptoms were gone, and now I feel fine again. I am going to continue this until noon and see if I feel like I am still making progress.

12 hrs in...

You know I’m not really hungry yet only slightly. I have slight headache now but that could be from all the time I’ve spent at the computer today. I should also clarify I am doing a juice fast with pomegranate and freshly squeezed orange juice, plus I put lemon and lime wedges in my water. I’ve even noticed one of my eating triggers by doing this. When I know I’m going to be sitting at the computer for a while working on something it’s a trigger to grab a snack. That type of behavior is definitely mindless eating. When I think back I can remember doing this many times even over the past week or two. Maybe that where some of my extra weight has been coming from?

All in all I am pleased with my fast so far.


I am doing a short juice fast while E is away. I want a chance to meditate on my life and to detox. I will be starting tonight after dinner :)

EDIT….how about today after the gym, for sure this time :)


I want to:
