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.

Got up at 4.50 AM

I am not hungry.. Just a bit tired and coz of that could not do my exercises.. i did it for almost 3 mins :(.. May be my body cant handle any fast movements right now..

I am some what prepared for this water fast, mentally (Sure) and physically (not so much), have done lots of research for the mental part, know exactly what to expect from water fasting, and for the physical part I have ate less for a week before or so..

I have this constant fear that others (my family , friends & Raj ( of course )) will try to hold me back from achieving this goal. If any of them comes to know about this 10 day marathon (for me).. They will definitely try to let this down.

I know I will eat again, and plenty, this is not a deprivation, this is doing myself a favor, a very big favor actually.

I read here and there about sleeping the whole day while fasting.. I don t think that will suit me.. I have this history of very bad sleeping patterns.. If I sleep during the day,I might stay awake the whole night and the next day will get spoiled.. I most certainly do not want to go back to that.. It is that sleeping pattern that turned me physically inactive and Over weight..

Aside from feeling a slight weakness and dizziness when I walk around, I am feeling pretty cool.. Not hungry really at all.. Apart from the occasional distractions when my mom asks me to help her with kitchen chores I am actually not even thinking about food at all.. This is a very good sign for me.. My whole day revolves around thinking/dreaming/imagining/visualizing about food..

Forgot to mention a major behavioral drawback.. I am an EMOTIONAL EATER.. So must just take this one day at a time. 2 years ago
