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.

I didn't think that it was possible, to be honest...

And then I found him :) It’s… yeah. It’s everything I could want in my life at the moment :)



lose 30 lbs (read all 8 entries…)
I'm working on it some more :)

Despite getting my period this weekend, and weighing myself this morning, and only going to the gym twice this week and not really doing anything to be honest, I’ve magically lost another 5 pounds. That gets me down to 7 I’ve lost so far. Really inspired me to work harder this week! :D



lose 30 lbs (read all 8 entries…)
It's a start :)

I’ve been eating… sorta healthily this week, although a small slice of cheesecake on Wednesday, and the Starbucks yesterday didn’t help too much.

But I have joined a gym, and I’m all good, and I lost 2 lbs. It’s not much, like I said, but it’s a start.

I know I have a lot more than 30lbs to lose, but I’m going to see how this mini target goes, and at the end of it, I’m going to buy myself… something nice. I haven’t decided what yet. Or I might get some heels. Lovely heels :) The sparkly ones from office :D They’re called ‘that friday feeling’, if you know the ones I’m on about.

Well, only can get better from here :)

Wish me luck :D
