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.

janeI'm discovering I'm kind of like a gremlin...

Not eating after 10 is really helping a lot. my weight finally started to drop. I guess I kept making up for my calorie deficit during the day with those few extra night time snacks… even though they weren’t “bad” foods and are allowed on my diet, I was obviously eating enough of them to keep from losing.

Also, it’s helping me get used to the feeling of being a little hungry or having some craving for something, and not automatically thinking that a snack will be the answer. This is really a big component of the new health regimen. SO, I think I’m going to call this goal “accomplished” and just integrate it as part of my overall health challenge goal.

Good luck to anyone else considering doing this. It’s DEFINITELY worth it. 6 years ago

... has bee my Achilles heel in the battle to get my body in shape. I must simply bannish the option of going into the kitchen for snacks after 10PM. I MUST accomplish this. It will go with my general goal of keeping to a schedule. 6 years ago
