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.

weighed in at 144.7 today! That makes me one and a half lbs down from last week, which is amazing, considering I’ve eaten out a couple of times, went out drinking couple of times. Maybe green te does work after all!

went through LOADS of old clothes I’d stuffed into bin bags under my bed a couple of years ago – because I’d gained so much weight they didn’t fit, but I was always saying I would fit into them again soon.

But of course not, it’s taken 2 years for me to start losing weight. I put loads into a charity bag which I know will never fit again – from my underweight days.

I’m also very embarrassed at the number of clothes which still had the label on – never worn because I’d bought them saying that they don’t fit but they will soon, and they never did. Such a waste of money! I’ve kept them because these ones I know will fit me once I’ve lost some more weight and I want some wear out of them.

It was an eye opener, but it’s hardened my drive
