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.

I want to be healthier
I want to be Healthier

I want to be Healthier, mentally, spiritally, and last but not least physically. I will never ever be thin and I’m okay with that but I need to be healthy for my family!! And for myself. I’ve tried before I mean truely tried it wasn’t half hearted in the least I busted my ass!! I can do it again! I think about walking why because my knees don’t work well I look at others and how they get up without a thought, something I’ve not done in years, and I envy them. Among the things my parents warned me about when gaining weight should have been, the pain, the hurt you feel when people look at you as no longer human. The pity that is almost as bad because I really screwed up and did this to myself. I tried to embrace this and say that I was still beautiful, and don’t miss understand me I am a beautiful person inside and out. I just don’t like the outer, and lets face it I have to live with me. And me hurts inside and out!!!



I want to:
