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 weight (read all 13 entries…)
Going really well

When I really began to try at this goal I didn’t think I would lose weight really. It sounds weird but never did I think I would lose 5 pounds in three weeks! It not even hard just initial umph to get you started is the biggest hurdle then you just stick to the plan and keep going and I have and I feel awesome.

net loss: -5 pounds
Goal: 9 stone


Hello & Congratulations ! Hope you consistently keep up with loosing weight. I myself lost 6 pounds this month on the low carb diet. What kind of a diet are you on? Do share!


I not really on a diet, I’ve just changed the choices i’ve made such as I drink only water and I eat a lot of fruit and veg and protien. I also eat carbs but i don’t go overboard. I exercise every other day.

Also in relation to exercising on my days off i would go walk instead of taking the bus, I would take the stairs instead of the lift.

I’ve changed my lifestyle basically, and don’t forget that your still allowed to have those things that you love but the trick is to downsize.
