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.

stop binge-eating
Here I go

I’ve got to turn of this self destruct mode. I’ve got to stop yanking my body through the wheels of binge-diet-binge. I blink my eyes once and my body is a temple. I blink my eyes twice and it’s a mudhouse.

I’ve got to stop feeling guilt. I’ve got to stop treating each binge as a cause to sit there, slump into self pity, yearning for a DeLorean, a doc and a life preserver. I’ve got to stop hating the body that I’m in. Okay, so it’s not perfect. Sure, I can’t bounce nickels off my behind like a kids off a trampoline. Sure, it’s not a panoramic land view of flesh, curvature and muscle definition. But I’m more than my body and compared to what it looked a year ago. Heck, angels could weep about it if they saw the before picture from a while back. It’s a work in progress, but that doesn’t mean you have to slump in disgust at the construction site.

Plus, you know why you binge eat. It’s a simple thing. It’s your fail safe escape mechanism. The CTRL ALT DELETE of all your anxiety problems. Whenever life gives you lemons, find the lemon cake, eat two of them, and then life’s lemons are forgotten about. You just sit there worrying about the after effect of your munchies. About how all your problems stem from your eating. About how all you care about is your weight. And then you devise a plan. A simple plan of how you’ll eat tomorrow. How you’ll exercise. How you’ll lose weight and how everything will magically get better. But just face the facts amigo, just because your ass is taut, doesn’t mean life will start shooting sunrays and unicorns out of it. You’ll still get your designate upload of unpleasantries and difficulties. What will you turn to then? The fridge?
