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 (read all 103 entries…)
First 1/4 down!!

So, I must have scared the plateau off because the scale moved today, and I have officially lost 25 lbs!
That is such an incredible feeling, and I’ve got the greatest reward I could possibly hope for; today I can see it and feel it, that doesn’t always happen.
To the 75 lbs that remain for this goal: Watch out, because you’re next!

Starting weight: 277
Current weight 252
Current mini-goal: 248
Overall goal for the year: 209
Total lost: 25
-100 lbs goal weight: 177
UGW: 140-145



I am proud of your 25lbs. mark!!! Each pound was 3500 calories….times(x) 25 lbs. =87,500 calories …...that’s 79 days of 1100 calories a day…..that’s almost a quarter of a year(365)....that’s truly amazing!!!!! You are 87,000 calories down towards your goal… go girl!!!! Each pound you loose, is one more pound that you controlled with your lips….a moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips….keep up the good work:)
