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.

lose 20 lbs (read all 3 entries…)

So I am embarrassed to say that almost a year later and I am still basically in the same place weight-wise. I think I weigh about 122 at this point. For some reason, my body doesn’t want me to drop below 120…it has been so hard for me. I would like to get down to 110 still (lower if I can). I will log my progress weekly.

Secret Goal (read all 4 entries…)
Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you can realize that you are stong enough to get back up...

I don’t know what happened the other day. I had been doing a pretty good job for a while and then BAM! Friday was a bad day. I did a lot of damage and it really disappointed me after being pretty good for so long (not perfect, but good). I think such an epic fail day really encouraged me to get this thing under control. It’s time.

I was good all day Saturday and so far all day today. I will start logging more often to keep myself accountable and on track. Here I go….

Did really well and then not so well...

...and I am ready to get back on the wagon. If I make it through today it will be day one. I need to be strong.

See all entries ...
