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.

love my body

I’ve decided that the first step towards loving my body is giving it the exercise that it needs. So I’ve been going swimming every other day for over a week now. It feels so good!
Yesterday I swam a whole kilometer. :)

get laser hair removal

I went to get the hair under my arms removed via laser last Friday. I’ll have to go again several times, but it’s a start! It was quite expensive but not painful in the least. I can’t wait to see some results!

Fix my teeth (read all 5 entries…)
I'm seeing so much progress!

I’m so glad I got braces! The progress I can see already just since March is unbelievable. My right front tooth used to jut out a LOT. Whenever I took a bite of banana or something similar I would look at the mark my teeth left and shudder.

I’ve just eaten a banana, and I noticed my teeth marks look almost perfectly even now! I still have a long way to go, but this is just so encouraging for me. :)

Especially since I’ve got annoying sharp wires poking at the insides of my cheeks now. Grr. I really have to go have that fixed.
