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 60 lbs
Today is the day

I’ve claimed that I’m going to start before, but this time I’m serious; but I usually say that as well. I am sick of being self concious, of hating my self, of wanting to cry in public places, of people thinking I’m little miss perfect when I feel like I am completely useless. People can’t pretend that I am healthy at this weight. I am obviously over weight. I am 180 something lbs (at college no scale anymore). I’m buying a scale this weekend. I’m working out each day. I am holding myself accountable. I can do this. I can acheive this goal. That’s all it is, another goal, but instead of starting at the top like I do in school (you know everyone starts with 100%) or just being faster in a race or just acting happy when meeting new people I am going starting at the bottom. Far behind everyone else, approximately 60 lbs. I want to be healthy. I want to be free.



I want to:
