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.

Going, going, choir trip!

Fantastic choir trip, but I gained so much weight :( Now I need to find it within myself to lose weight~

Success!!...and then....yeah no....

So I somehow managed to lose weight during the month of January and into February without having to focus on it. I actually only weighted 103 at one point. But then I had one of those days when I felt like munching-no big deal-that turned into nearly a month of munching-big deal. I am so disappointed in myself, especially since I felt so much better thin. Back to the drawing board….

Well, I'm back!

Where to begin once again on my never-ending quest? well, I think I shall try little steps. I went running earlier, so that is good. My main problem is sweets, in fact I think that may be my entire problem. I virtually live on junk food-especially chocolate- and it makes me feel a bit yucky. Thus, tomorrow I shall consume no chocolate as a kickstart and try to do a little workout of some sort.
