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.

stop eating wheat
I have to do this.

I am embarrassingly addicted to wheat products, especially toast. I can eat rounds and rounds of toast at a time, and never feel like I’ve had enough. Actually, that’s so true… I can never have enough. I know myself, my husband says to me: “Just have a couple pieces and be done with it.” But that’s not possible for me. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. The only way to get this under control is to get rid of it completely.

This is so easy to say right now as I had my toast this morning and thus my ‘fix’ is okay for now. But I know later that bread on the counter is going to look pretty delicious, and my brain is going to say “you look fine, just go ahead and have some. Just one piece.” Well SCREW YOU wheat-addicted brain. I will anticipate your sabotaging ways and ignore you. I know I can do this. I’ve given up many things in the past (salt, soft drinks, dairy, chocolate), but for some reason giving up wheat is a real bitch. I’ve tried and failed so many times. But hopefully this will be it.

Please let this be it….........
