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 End.

Weighed in today and my weight had dropped below the target for my goal. So this is it. I’ve done it. Thanks for the cheers and support over the last few years.

Slow

Slow progress since the beginning of the year. A lot of things changed, getting me off track, but I’m back hope to have a positive report next week.

Cool

I’m having to jettison more clothes that no longer fit. I’m literally swimming in some of stuff. So, I went out to buy some new stuff today. It seems that the plateau is only half the story. I’ve definitely gotten more trim even as my weight has remained largely constant.

Goal for December

Goal is to close the year at 210.

November Progress

Plateau really screwed me up as well as the feast of Thanksgiving. Didn’t eat too much, but certainly drank more than I usually do. That leaves progress at only 1 pound for the month. And so the battle continues. On the upside 17 pounds is a very noticeable amount of progress to me and to others. SW: 230 CW: 213 GW: 190.
