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.

lose 15 pounds (read all 5 entries…)
I have kind of stalled on this, but wonderfully!

I have put down this goal originally because I thought I needed to lose 15 pounds. Again, I repeat that I “thought”. I was feeling chunky and I also wanted to look good for the one that I love.

Thursday, my beloved said words to me that made me pause and listen to his words. His first words were “Your hot” At first, I paused to really allow the words sink in and I tried to sideline them with a stupid remark because I didn’t know how to take the compliment even though my heart was just leaping in joy.

He repeated it again and said things that every women needs to hear from the one they love.

“You are perfect and you are so beautiful.”

He has melted my heart over and over again the past couple months that I don’t think I have much of a heart to melt!

He told me that even though a couple years ago I was a bit heavier and I lost the weight I gained, I was perfect. He was just amazed that I was so beautiful. I told him thank you quietly as my heart was puddle of goo before him. He said to me that I have said some about myself that were not encouraging. I looked at him and said “really?” I know at times that my low self esteem shows at times but I having been try so very hard to correct that visual outlook on myself.

I told him that weight gain is sometimes hard during the winter months because I am like a chipmunk because I seem to storage more food on body during those months. I love to eat and I am less phsyical in the winter then in the spring and summer months.

I hear the words that I am perfect in his eyes no matter that I feel a bit chunky. To have him hold me close and tell me that I am beautiful makes me realize that the way I see myself is not the way he looks at me.

Hearing him say those words makes me feel like a million dollars with all my flaws and little bit of flub thats pocketed here and there on my body.

If I don’t lose 15 lbs, I am not worried and will not be worried because I realize now that he loves me no matter if I weight 125 lbs or 115. He loves me for whom I am and not what I am.

I love him so much for his wonderful words that showed me so much more then I what I was actually seeing in my mirror.



What store can I get that brand of guy at? Sounds like quality craftsmanship.

It is funny that you say that.

When I met my dearheart, it was like he was from another planet and he was just visiting.

I have to say that I have been praying for a man like this in my life – exactly like this! He has all the wonderful qualities that I need in my life to complete me. He is strong where I am weak.

He is absolutely amazing and I tell him that any chance I get.

I couldn’t have ask God for a better person to hold my heart.

He is so amazing and I thank God every day for my dearheart’s presence in my life.
