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.

Okay I’ve lost 13lbs since Christmas! Yippee!! I can finally fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes again. I still have 5 more lbs I’d like to lose.

I started a new diet which is supposed to reset your metabolism. It’s really working and it’s speeded up my weight loss. I’ve lost 6lbs in 2.5 weeks. SWEET!

Everyday Food

Okay for those of you who are struggling like I was pick up an Everyday food magazine! I bought one the other day and I’m definitely getting a subscription. There are fabulous EASY recipes that taste so amazing you’ll think you’re eating at a restaurant. The best part is they have an “all in one bag” section that has a grocery list and everything you need to make dinners every night for a week! I’ve made a few meals so far and everything has turned out really well. If I can do it so can you!!

listen to music more often

kicks butt!
