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.

1st Day of Low-Card Diet

About 8 days ago I completly quit caffiene and am now drinking only water. My appetite has dramatically been reduced as well. I feel great compared to what I did before this but now I have the need to feel even better. Today (Feb 1st) the scale said I was 245lbs. I have a primary goal of getting thru the month of February without giving up. I will let my weight do what it will and not worry to much about numbers for now. If I succeed with that I will see where I am at March 1st and build upon it with new goals. For now its all one day at a time.

Day 9 and maybe I am getting cocky....

...but I feel great. Every time I want a soda I drink water, and then more water. Still the only negative side effect I am “suffering” is that my energy at the end of my work day is gone and I feel like I could fall asleep on-the-spot. Today I started a low-card diet so I could have a 2nd thing to do here. I decided that both things could be attempted at the same time becuase they both had to do with my diet and my health. Let’s see. Day #1 I am 245 lbs. I will write more about my goals in that area in the low carb diet area.

Doing great on day 6...

...I am seeing really that my hardest part of overcoming this addiction is learning to deal with when I would habitually drink a soda. On the side effects side of this experiment, I have seem to have had a substantial loss in appeitite. I can eat about a third of what I did just last week. Also, I get extremely tired at the end of my work day. My muscles get sore and I can barely keep my eyes open. I know that will get better but it really is scarey because I drive 35 minutes home from work and would hate to fall asleep while going 70+ MPH on the freeway…. I am very happy with how all has turned out so far. I really hope to continue to see positive changes in the next few weeks.

See all entries ...


I want to:
