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.

A better way....

I’m giving up on this because I think WW kept me to focused on weight loss when what I really need is muscle mass. Dieting when already at a ‘normal’ weight without consistent exercise resulted in the same shape and muscle not fat loss. I’ve been kind of dissatisfied with my Curves gym so I’ve decided to try a personal trainer. I’m hoping with a trainer I will learn new ways to exercise and be active, switching my focus from dieting to toning. Wish me luck :)

I want to earn 20 Activity Points this week. Which means I will have exercise about 6 times this week.

I have a plan. I can keep going. I’m not going to be discouraged by how long it took or what issues of life got in the way. Its not a race, I’m learning for myself and I’m enjoying it. I’m grateful for the opportunity and measure my success based on my personal experience. I refuse to think my degree is worthless, even if it doesn’t command much in the economy. It has been my journey of faith. These week I’m reading Thackeray’s Vanity Fair – it’s hilarious. I’m having a good time.
