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.

Free Study Guide!

I was looking through my old books, and I found a GED study guide that was given to me a while ago. I was overjoyed when this happened, because I nearly bought a new one. I’m recommending it to anyone who is looking to get their GED. I started reading it last night. So far, so good!

Free Driving Lessons!

It turns out that I don’t have to pay for driving school. My boyfriend has been teaching me how to drive. I wasn’t sure about this at first. However, I was pleasantly surprised the first time he took me out. He was very patient, didn’t seem nervous, (which helped me to stay calm) and overall, he’s a great teacher. I can’t wait to start parallel parking!

Got my permit!

I just have to take the road test now. I really need to practice driving though. I don’t want to spend money on driving school…but I think I might just have to do that.

lose 10 lbs
"I wanna look good naked!" -American Beauty

I’m losing weight by doing the following:
-cut meat, fast food, junk food, & alcohol out of my diet
-eat mostly fruit & veggies
-eat nuts, beans & legumes for protein
-eat starches sparingly (bread, rice, pasta, cereal…etc)
-drink full glass of water or 100% juice before and after meals
-drink only or mostly water
-listen to your body…eat what you’re craving (unless unhealthy)
-only eat when you’re hungry & finish when you’re full
-try to eat 6 small meals/day rather than 3
-concentrate on portion size:
palm of your hand is protein, entire hand is fruit & veggies, and your balled up fist is the amount of starches that counts as 1 serving each.
*keep in mind that you can also switch up a few servings of fruit & veggies in the form of juice. Some places sell juices with the amount of servings listed on the bottle. Don’t forget to choose organic 100% juice. So far I’ve lost ten lbs by using these methods WITHOUT EXERCISE. Ten more to go! Hope this helps!
