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.

lose 100 pounds
i lost 87 pounds

So January 4, 2009 i weighed 286. My heaviest. That day i decided to start to lose weight. that was also the day i went to my first Weight Watchers meeting. I was like, this is gonna happen! I want to lose 40 pounds. Well in three months i lost 36 pounds. then i was like I got the hang of this why pay 39 dollars a month so i quit and followed the program on my own for free. So then summer came around and my weight loss slowed due to parties and such. But we come around to November of 2009 and i am down to 199. I was going to the gym 5 days a week and running every time (and with these knees that was saying something). But that was the same time I had just bought a house and my girlfriend moved in with me. Now i started to gain a little. And then a little more. I was not counting calories or points and stopped the gym membership. So This May 2010 we got married. But by now i have gained 21 pounds. So now i gotta lose 34 pounds to get to my original goal. I have not lost hope. I will lose those 34 pounds.


Funny, I’ve noticed every time someone gets into a relationship both of the individuals tend to gain weight. Great job on the weigh loss. 36 lbs will be gone before you know it. Good luck.

Josh_C has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
