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.

hi one time i wanted to throw up and it too was also hard for me, but i found out that using a regular toothbrush or my favorite a vibrating toothbrush will help you alot and even better than sticking your fingers down the throat, just make sure the vibrating toothbrush is on when you try to throw up. Just remember that doing this can cause serious problem to your heart, stomach, esophagus, teeth and electrolyte imbalances so dont do it too often. Hoped this helped. :)

*Eat a Balenced diet. (yes, food IS good for you!)

•Exercise 3x a week.
*Do yoga (its good for the MIND,BODY,SOUL)
•Write in a journal, about your feelings, life, school, etc.
-just know that starving yourself will screw up your body. you will lose weight at first. then you will gain weight, because when you DO eat your body will store that in fear you wont feed it again.

Hi, my sister recentaly wanted to do the same thing so i looked a lot of information so i know a lot. first i would say go to a pyschotherapytisc and a health care. provider or your doctor. Also you could this book called Bulimics Guide to Recovery. Im not sure if thats the excat title. Hope this helps. :)

Hands help

Press below the centre of your ribs (on your stomache) while doing it, its helpful but you also need to be relatively full.

I really want to do it but I am scared its gonnna be gross or something…please help

Hi

Yeah i have been doing that quite a bit, but my tounge kinda hurts when i eat things. Is there any other way to make your self throw up without using your fingers? and soda kinda works for me.. get back to me please

use the end of a tooth brush instead of your finger

oh friend..

throwing up wont only hurt ur tounge but it will also destroy ur teeth just like mine.. so im warning u.. hehehehehe…... peace!!!!!

i stick my finger down my throat really far but every time i just gag and nothing comes up
am i doing something wrong?

helpppp meeee

omg , im new to this but i have been trying to throw up after i eat and stick my fingers in and out but nothing comes up just alot of spit

please help asap!

make sure u eat a good amount of food, and drink water while ur eating! My advice is to eat alotr of startchy things, like cookies, cake etc…
then lean over the bath or toilet (keep standing) and put ur toothbrush head down the back of ur throat. or ur finger. use the action as though you were trying to brush back and forworth the throat. u will gag, cry, find it hard to breathe, but it works…

that actually works^

any other tips

EEEEEERY

I JUST STARTED. NOT TO MENTION I AM BATTLEING DEPRETION. I NEED AN EASEY WAY TO THROW UP

My Bullimia Story..

Hey guys,
im not here to tell you that you shouldnt do it because if your anything like me, you wont listen, but please just here me out.

i have been Bullimic for a few years now. it was all good at first, losing weight, having a nice body, but i wasnt happy still, i wanted more. i said to myself before i started throwing up that i would stop once i reached my goal weight, it sounded easy enough but this is an actual disease and it did take over my whole life, whether i was ready to admit it or not. i started out throwing up once a day, this very quickly progressed to at least 10 times a day to the point where i was just throwing up water because i believed that there was calories in water. i was weighing my self 15 times a day which is just setting myself up for an eating disorder.

i was at the point where my fingers just wouldnt do it for me so i would use objects like a tooth brush or the end of a thick paint brush. i was in complete denial and thought no one new about it as i was pretty sly about it. about 3 months ago i hit rock bottom and boy did i meen rock bottom. i was suffering from severe depression to the point where i was cutting my wrists alot and burning my self with a lighter, i really wished i was dead. this is not the life i thought i would have as a little girl.

late september 2009 i was admitted into a rehabilitation clinic ( phsyc ward ) as i was powerless over my desease and clearly needed help. i was in there for 1 month and it was the worst month of my life. every day and every meal is still a struggle today. i am attending 12 step meetings every week and seeing a dietition every 2 weeks. i have had to get a sponser that i have to call after every meal. guys this IS serious, it has ruined my life, i am not cured at all, i still have my days as i am still only in early recovery, i still have my days where i accidentally eat one of my ‘trigger’ foods and it will automatically come up after one mouth full and i still take laxatives as i am convinced they help you lose weight (they dont btw) all they do is put you in exteme pain to the point where i hit the floor from fainting and end up with concussion, not to mention i am on the toilet 99% of the day.

my teeth are ruined and i am very self consious about my smile now, my parents spent thousands on braces and dentistry work and i pretty much just shat on them for it. i still have problems going to the toilet because of the abuse of laxatives and every day is a struggle.

i still suffer severe depression today and i am still visiting the hospital 4 times a week and may be going back in early next year.

so please think before you do it, as its not a one off thing and you WONT be able to stop no matter what you tell yourself. once bullimic ALWAYS bullimic. i hope you got something out of my story because its really not worth it in the end.

good luck xoxoxo

thank you this is sick i feel sory for these people :(

iv tried

i cant do it . im new to this. and idk when to do it. TIPS PLZ

rani
x

Help me !

I can’t throw up! I drank water with salt I put the tooth brush deep in my throat and nothing!!!! Can someone tell me another way! ASAP!!!!

how much

how much weight do any of you guys lose a week on average if you throw up once a day? i am new to this and i dont know how do throw up but i dont want to put myself through all that trouble if i dont lose that much in the end. i REALLY want to lose about 15-20 pounds in the next 3 weeks, is that possible? or how long would it take to lose that much weight???

(This comment was deleted.)

its alot easier for people with confindence to say that, when you dont go to bed sometimes crying yourself to sleep because your not good enough, and i knw you mean good, but it doesnt ever help just to tell someone that they are fine just the way they are because with me, i dont care what other people say about me, i just want to be happy with myself…

i get that, i sometimes think my eyes r gna dry out frm crying so much

RE:How Much

If you puke every day for a week and only drink water then you will lose about ten pounnds in 1-2 weeks!!
: )

RE:how much

but how do you do it?

woah!

good, i need to lose that.

Puking

I use the end of my toothbrush as well.

(the first few times if its scary do this…)
Put it in through the corner of your mouth and slide it all the way back with it touching the side of your mouth .

When it reaches the very back of your mouth go down your throat all the way to where you feel the urge to puke, then go back and forth with it until you finally puke,it will feel like you are choking at first and your eyes will fill with tears so you may not be able to see, but just stay strong and keep doing it until you have dry heaves and nothing else can come out.
After puking about 5 or so times its not as hard…you will puke easier and it will feel less like choking.

Thank you so much for your tip!! :)

thankss
i have a question
ive been throwing up but i want to stop when im at the weight i want
is it true i wont be able to stop?

No, it is not true that you wont be able to stop, just go visit your doctor, pyschoalogist, or a health car provider. There is also a book called Bulimics Way to Recovery. Not sure if thats the excate title. Hope this will help. :)

I AGREE! Using your toothbrush is the best! I have a toothbrush that the end is extremely wide and it works amazing! Also, remember to not stop until you are throwing up big chunks otherwise its not working. I am wondering right now, if i ate last night is it too late to throw it up today i havent eaten yet today?
I find it harder to throw things up when i wait too long.

thank you

Thank you! Finaly someone understands! I know I’m strong enough to stop when I want to. I’m not fat but I’m not skinny eather. I’m not hot nor pretty. I’m not ugly I’m not skinny. I don’t want to be perfict and I don’t have to be good enough for him. I’m doing this for me and only me.

i tried yesterday, and finally did it today. :) you take the head of a toothbrush and place in the the very back of your throat. lean over the toilet-standing-and begin brushing where your tounge meets your throat. keep doing it until something comes up. you’ll get a few gags first, but something will come up. also, drink lots of water, before and after your meals. if you use your fingers, they’ll smell like vomit afterwards, so, don’t do that. don’t be scared to do it. nothing’s going to happen. and don’t tell youself you need to throw up, or you want to. you wont do it then. calm down and relax. it’ll just happen. keep trying.

okay the best thing to do it eat a lot of food.. if i only eat a little i cant really throw up.. but when i want to i eat a lot of food.. until i feel sick.. & when you eat a lot and dont stop for like 20 minutes you will have to “burp” .. when you feel like you have burp and it kind of comes up a little in your throat or stomach or something thats when you throw up and it all comes out..

this is really gross & you guys you probably dont want to start doing this. it wont just be about throwing up & loosing weight. it will be become you life.. like all you’ll want to do it eat because you’ll be so hungry since you threw up & have nothing in your stomach.. then you’ll eat.. then you’ll throw up again. it becomes a never ending cycle like all day long it is horrible. & you wont be able to stop because you’ll be so scared if you just swallow & dont throw up you’ll get fat..

if anything.. try to not do it a lot.. maybe every once in a while when you accidently eat a lot.. but dont go home planning on throwing up after you eat some good junk food.. or else it will begin to control you

sorry for the lecture guys but people told me and i never believed it.. you guys still might not believe me but its crazy that its true.. too bad i had to learn it the hard way by doing it to myself.. also this stuff can lead to infertility.. so if you ever want to have a little boy or girl you could be ruining your chances of having that one day just for developing this really gross habit.. & try to learn this now because it will be so so much harder to stop as you get older

sorry if i brought anyone down.. just speaking the truth from experience & im just trying to help; goodluck
<3brit

forever ago

I just stumbled on this site a little while ago. You may never get this, but I still feel like it needs to be said: Thank you for warning everyone about the less glamorous aspect of purging. Although I finally realized how out-of-control it was becoming, I still think of it, and even do it from time to time. It sucks, it will always haunt you, and you are ABSOLUTELY right: there is a certain point when you stop doing it to lose weight, and it becomes the only thing that seems to make bad days a little better. i would do it after my ex would make me feel like shit. I would do it after I failed a test. I would do it when I had an audition coming up.

I didnt start unitl I was in college…and I did it without a friend to confide in. It was hard to keep up the lie of the fact that I lost so much weight just by working out and being a dance major.

I soon divided up my female friends into two groups: the ones that ‘believed’ my ridiculous lies clearly purged as well and didnt want to make waves or get caught and those that didnt really believe me or those who would intentially ask about how I was so skinny, knew that something was up and wanted to know exactly what.

It seems like the answer to every dieting problem.

But it’s not.

I got so thin that I literally found myself more disgusting than I did when I first started. It was the most hard, confusing, frustrating, demeaning, upsetting, disgusting thing that I have ever done to myself.

I have never looked up any type of blog about young people actively purging and it was such a shock to read all of these girls asking for tips.

Good luck to you and to everyone looking for tips for your next binge. I realy hope that it ends well for them.

Thank you again for telling your story, and thank you for reading mine (if you get this)

Suko Luna

RE:

yes! i have tryied my finger, my toothbrush, everything. it doesn’t work! help please!

weight loss?

I started throwing up this week. I have tried it once before but decided to stop after the first time. I am very insecure because I had a baby a year ago and did not lose all my weight. All my friends that had kids lost their weight within the first year. I just wanted to know if throwing up really works to help you lose weight? If so how much does it help you lose and how fast? How many times a day do you need to do it? I want to lose AT LEAST 20 pounds. I am at 150 right now…. but i want to go back to 130 like i was before the baby. Can someone please answer the questions for me. thanks guys

prothinspo.com i love it!

no.

i have experience with this.
im really young, and have been throwing up for 2 years, and i am extremely ashamed. i dont get how you can condone this kind of behavior, everyday i wish i was different, but i can not do it. ill be starving so ill eat, but if i eat, i feel fat and throw up.
this is awful.
you should NOT be giving tips on how to do it, thats just sick.

edit

*i can’t not…

:3

thank you for the advice. I’ve tried soooooo many times to throw up but it have never happened :(( But now after I’ve been reading this, I decided to try once more -> :)) maybe your comments will help?

My heart cries out to you

Genetically I am nothing awesome. I am only here b/c I am trying to find the name of the thing people push on to throw up. I can’t believe what I am reading.
I work for a hospital and there are people who have serious problems with not being able to stop doing this. I don’t smoke, drink coffee or do anything else people cannot stop doing b/c I don’t want to lose control over my life. I want to gain it. I exercise and eat 6 small meals per day and by doing this I already lost a ton of weight.
Why would you risk killing yourself (starvation) and/or put yourself into an addictive situation? No guy is worth this and if you need to do this to keep him, he is a piece of shit.
Look, ask me questions and I can guide you. For now though clean yourself from the inside out. You are a good person, establish this, next diet and exercise. Live longer.

I’ve also heard only eat four meals a day and each time before the meal eat 2 fruits or 2 vegatables and you will get fuller faster. If you are only eating that much a day there is no need to throw it up.

please write bak

hi i fitnessguy i really need your help and advice

Will respond

Hi,
I haven’t been able to log in. I am finally in but am looking for your original comment.
I’ll be in touch probably later this evening unless I can get to it earlier.

Stay strong.

hi

hey, im sorry, im new to this thing and i dont no how to work it,
if u can can u please reply to my email hayley_200@hotmail.com
im sorry you dont have to but id like ur help and i think we have a time difference
thankyou

hmmm

Those things are not working isn’t there pills that could help with weight loss ? and then even if i do get them only have medicaid so how am i goin to pay for them this is the only way. thanx n e way though

No quick fix

They sell water pills but all they do is make you piss away water which starves your muscles making one look worse.
If you really want to get in shape you need to realize depending on what your standards are it could be tough.
You don’t look fat at all by the way.
When I had my ripped abs, I was hungry often but kept my mind busy and I chewed a ton of gum. Do you feel empty inside and seek significance? There is a relationship between feeling whole and religion.
At best, I would substitute a protein drink in the evening for a meal. Have your largest meal when you first get up so you have all day to burn it off. Don’t look for the easy fix. I highly recommend the Fitness competitions found on bodybuilding.com. This isn’t for muscle girls but beautiful toned girls. They have a way of health that could work for any girl. You are good enough by the way. Don’t blame how you feel in side with how you look.
