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.

losing weight

i want to so bad. as of now i weigh 250 something. im a 16 almost 17 year old girl. i hate how i cant stop myself when im sad or have even the slightest urge to eat and i just start eating. ive tried losing weight. i went to a gym for 3 months, march to late may. i would go with my friend best friend. at first it didnt seem like i was losing weight but soon i had lost 15 pounds and i was happy. i could button size 16 pants. then summer started and my parents kept me inside, never letting me go out or hang with my friend. i ended up being depressed and eating more. i gained all 15 ponds back in 2 months. my dad committed suicide in july and my depression worsened. i ate more. now its October and im hating myself for being like this… im gonna change… i will...
