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.

Gained so much weight.

I’ve gained so much weight since I gave birth to my daughter in 2004. I’ve tried over the years to lose weight, many ways I’ve tried were just fads. They don’t work in the long run. I’ve been just so depressed from being in so much pain from the Rheumatoid Arthritis. So depressed and so angry. However, I still try. I always still try. I try to eat healthier, I have been juicing now almost every day for a month, and I even go to the gym at least 4 times a week. I’m going to keep trying until I succeed.

get enough sleep

This week I’ve definitely been getting enough sleep. Granted, Dominique is home from school so our schedule is off. But we are still getting at least 9-10 hrs of sleep at night.

March - September 2010

I started massage school in March 2010 and the classroom lasted 10 weeks, until June. After that I had intern hours at the school’s clinic, that I was able to finish by September. Now I am working there as a graduate!
