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.

GrayPyre is trying really hard.

Starting to see it

Im just starting to see the definition I’m looking for in my arms and shoulders and it’s really encouraging! I know I’m going to have to start tightening up my diet more and doing more exercise at home to get where I want to be but I know I have it in me.
The hard part is dealing with having other people in the house to feed and their schedules to deal with.
To make it even harder the only things my husband ever wants to suprise me with are sweets and junk food. It really blows me away sometimes, the man has watched me struggle for over three years to lose 100lbs and get my body back to where I want it and he still wants to shove cookies down my throat. I could so go off on a tangent here…


Todd Schoonover will miss all his 43T friends


Congratulations on your progress. It takes dedication and effort to maintain weight loss, as well as to bring out definition. I can definitely empathize with you about family giving you food as gifts. Even though my parents were very supportive of my weight loss, they would give me this huge bag of groceries for my birthday and Christmas things I like including marinated artichokes, but things that aren’t conducive to weight loss. I finally had to tell them to stop buying me food as gifts. They still do sometimes like when my mom recently bought me some flavored licorice, but it’s a lot better than what it had been.

Good luck with your continued efforts, and I hope that you are able to avoid the temptations that your husband provides.

I think that for so many people Food is Love

Maybe that is where your husband is coming from. Perhaps you should mention that love is a shiny apple? (or something to tht effect)

GrayPyre has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
