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.

greendragon1312 is having a great day

lose weight (read all 2 entries…)

I have backslid (if there is such a word) and gained back some of the weight. I joined an 18 month health program that requested that I join a gym doing cardio and small amount of weights and stretches twice a week which I do. But since joining quit using the wii and have not lost anymore weight.

I have now decided to finish out the course but rededicate myself to the wii and planning out what I eat and recording daily (well making note).


ooreach just worked out. getting ready for work.

journal helps!

If your like me, you can easily sneak extra calories every day and the journal helps you to be honest. like a budget for your household, once you’ve got yourself going it’s second nature. Allows me to tweak my eating. Not always about eating LESS, just smarter. Better choices. I grew up with “go with” foods. Side dish or such.
Mine was pretzles. Couple of handfuls with every dinner was 300 unneeded calories. That could be 31 pounds gained over a year (sorta). Now I do veggies. Carrots and celery are much better.
Just remember it’s 1 3 or 5 years from now, when you look back. Your good habits will get you to your goal and keep you there. This is a life long event so don’t let the days or weeks get to you. I’m a recovering yo-yo dieter and I will be for life.


I want to:
