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.

maromeraA relapse

After two great months I have to admit that during my class trip to Villa de Leyva I ate a lot of sugar. (sigh) I’ll try not to be so hard on myself and get back to the right path. (sigh) 21 months ago

maromeraSweet Holidays

I’ve to admit it: I competely forgot about controlling my sugar intake during the holidays. I ate all the sweet treats people gave me and even more, I bought some of my own. My last exam was o.k., but I seriously doubt it is going to be the same now. So, I begin again today. I have to understand that my health and my life are more important than the instant gratification of eating something sweet. 23 months ago

NielPlease don't make it harder.

I think that next Christmas, I’m going to politely ask people to not give me food as gifts. 23 months ago

maromeraProgress report: Celebrations and Soda

I’ve managed to reduce a lot my sugar intake. There are still two major challenges:
-Birthday cake (I’ve had too many parties, I need to take something with me, a little bit of fruit or something to avoid eating the delicious treats and cake)
-Coke (Since my sister is addicted to coke, she always keeps a bottle and a glass in front of the T.V. I need to keep a healthy alternative in order to resist temptation) 2 years ago

NielSticking to this.

Today I re-discovered why I have this goal. I got a pack of rusks for my birthday, and I ate them all over the last few days. Now I have a stiff neck, and nothing is done. It erodes my discipline and makes me fat. 2 years ago

It’s quite easy really. I occasionally buy myself a cappuccino on campus. Very occasionally – I avoid caffeine. I don’t like my cappuccino bitter, so I usually add some sugar, which stands on the counter. I’m currently in a sugar cutting phase, so I asked if they have some sweetener, and they did! Quick & easy. 3 years ago

maromeraI have to...

I had a medical appointment today. I need to quit sugar if I don’t want to have diabetes. This is going to be harder than quitting alcohol because I’m really addicted to chocolate. 3 years ago

NielDear critic:

No, it’s not a fad diet: eating only small amounts of starch is a healthy lifestyle choice. This has been a scientific fact for some time now, and in my experience good for me too. 3 years ago
