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.

Go to Walt Disney World (read all 2 entries…)
We loved it!

Although we had the normal vacation issues, we loved Walt Disney World. For those of you that care… here is how we rank the parks:

1 Animal Kingdom, peaceful & beautiful, unlike anyother theme park on the planet

2 EPCOT, a great mix of culture and innovation

3 Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon, Best themed water park ever!

4 Magic Kingdom, a sad copy of Disneyland, but well worth the visit

5 Disney-MGM Studios, Disney’s version of Universal Studios

Have weight loss surgery (read all 2 entries…)
I have had the surgery

For those of you considering this process know that it is not something to be entered into lightly and that regardless of the physical changes the surgery offers you, it is ultimately up to you to correct your behavior. That said it has been 3 months since my surgery and I have lost over 135lbs total since before the surgery.

lose 200 pounds
On my way....

Well I have so far lost over 135lbs so I’m going to tell everyone that it is a possiblity and it can be done! I am not at my goal yet but it is getting ever closer.
