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.

not giving up.

started “trying” half assed last february when i went to heart doc and realized i weighed 190 pounds. i am now down to a steady 184. long time and slow weight loss is probably the best for me. i am counting calories about 80 percent of the time during the week. things fall apart sometimes on weekends. today is solid so far. i walked the dog and plan on cleaning the house a lot this afternoon. sticking with this til the weight gradually falls off. using fitness app

finally went back

i let about three months go by without going. i started to feel embarrassed that it had been so long that it kept me from going back. my weight gain and insecurity makes me really not want to go get into a happy baby or downward dog pose. but, i went twice last week to a basic class and can feel a huge difference in my mood. i love the class. i won’t let this happen again. goal for this week is to go at least twice. wednesday night and friday afternoon. i SWEAR.

rough week

today was fine, this week was overall very stressful so i didn’t do very well. as i was driving today thinking about things i realized how much everything in my life is interconnected. i know what i have to do to stay sane and healthy and control my anxiety/ocd plus my picking. everything relies on the other. the picking relates to my stress, which relates to my weight, which relates to my food and also relates to my exercising, which relates to my picking, which relates to whether or not i make it to yoga, which relates to whether or not i feel like crap, which relates to whether or not i pick. going to try for a solid day one tomorrow.

i'm not failing until i quit trying

i am trying to remind myself of this as my picking has gotten out of control . i am still out of the mirror-but i am feeling and digging like never before. my skin is broken out-due to a poor diet and not drinking enough water and getting exercise and rest. also aging hormones. i think i have adult acne now. goody. i have been stressed and depressed. lots of issues that i probably shouldn’t let bother me, but because i have OCD it makes me crazy. not going to give up ever!!!!!!! day one starts tonight. AGAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIN

can’t keep my hands off today. this sucks. still managed, somehow…to stay out of the mirror for a long time though. i guess that is making the touching and digging worse? not sure. this sucks so bad. i HATE this.

blah

not so good, but its been worse. i haven’t been going to yoga and i really need to go back. it helps with everything so much. i hate this habit. i feel like i’m not making any progress, kinda like with my weight issues. so frustrating to try and really want something and not make progress. dug my fingers into spots and i am trying to look up close in the mirror all the time. this sucks. i’m depressed today. not giving up though. day one starts tonight???
