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.

weigh 120 pounds (read all 2 entries…)

i weighed myself on two scales today.
one scale read 125, the other 122.
i think the 125 is more accurate, but either way, i’m thrilled.

weigh 120 pounds (read all 2 entries…)

last summer, after dieting and exercising more i weighed 123.
about a month into school, i had stopped dieting and my metabolism had changed.
by january, i weighed around 138. at my heaviest, i was 139.5.
from last june, i weighed in at 130.
i am now 128.

short-term goal: 125.
long-term goal: 120, obviously. :)

drink more water

so i’m on vacation, and i’ve been replacing everything i drink at home (soda, iced tea, etc.) with water, on account of i’m staying with my sister and she doesn’t keep any of those things around.
i’ve felt noticably more healthy and i’ve actually dropped a couple pounds, and therefore am already moving towards my other goals.
i’d like to drink the recommended amount.

[i have been drinking milk also, but i’m a vegetarian and i’ve got to get my protein whenever i can! :)]
