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.

Overcome my eating disorder. (read all 5 entries…)
Hmm. . . kind of amazing

Here’s the thing. I have binged and purged several times a day for years. Yeeeears. Except for the two times I have been in inpatient treatment. Every once in a while I have had a day here or there where I don’t, usually because I am sick (actually sick, not self-induced, ha ha).

But last week I was on vacation with my boyfriend – for just 3 1/2 days and I didn’t binge or purge at all. Three solid days. Usually I will find a way to have a small binge/purge even when I am with people. WOW! Now, let me not kid you. I binged the minute I got back home, but it does let me know that it is possible on my own. I mean, without hospitalization. And I felt terrific.

He is a good guy. For reasons that are too complicated to describe here, we won’t be together forever. But I’d like to think he could know everything about me. . .

Practice yoga once a week
Went to class last week

For the first time in two months. My original instructor left, which made me surprisingly sad! – but this one is okay, if less rigorous.
