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.

Losing weight

It’s been about 5 weeks since I joined WW. I have lost 4.6 pounds so far. Not great but getting there. I will continue to work at it until I am at a reasonable weight. I’m feeling good about getting this going.



i would suggest fruit and vegtibles there are two can work with a diet. you sould also exersie i think that would help you. you would lose wight and get more muscel as you go along. DONT! GO ON FOOD STRIKE IT WILL MAKE YOU END UP IN THE EMERGANCY ROOM. to tell the truth i care about people so just do what will make you happy for that is was really counts.

glad you are feeling good

I often “freak out” when I try to lose weight and start obsessing about the scale – so I like the “feeling good” focus that you seem to have – after all, that’s what it’s all about.

go look at a pound of butter

and imagine it stuck to your hips.

See? Even just one pound is a lot, and you’ve lost more than four times that much. Stick with it. You’re doing great!

thebean has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
