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.

kewpieOn my own terms

I don’t follow ALL the things you can track on that site… and I don’t want to spend a big chunk of time doing it all, but I think I am doing a good job at doing what I want and need to do to lose the weight.

I track my food – not super accurate, but enough to get a good idea. I don’t do those meal plans, but I use them as a guideline – like breakfast should be one protein, two grains and a fruit.

I keep track of my weight but not my measurements. I may start doing that. I also just log in my gym minutes. I don’t separate it out from cardio or strength training. I mostly just do the treadmill. Perhaps if or when I decide to do fancier stuff, I’ll separate it all out.

So I’m doing well. I haven’t tested it “on the road” yet. And considering I screwed up and didn’t check anything over the holidays, I will count this done when I can go travelling or to parties and still keep track of it all. 6 years ago

RebeccaYeah, no.

Haven’t been keeping up at all. I have another goal that’s something like “stop making my life a self-improvement project.” I’m just so tired right now of thinking, “How can I be better??” I just want to “be,” kwim?

The problem is I’ve gained about 6 pounds using this philosophy. I’ve been working out regularly but eating anything I want basically. Food journaling is key for me but I just don’t feel like doing it right now. 7 years ago

RebeccaGot off track with this
