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.

15 pounds to go

I’ve gone through several periods of weight gain and loss in my life. I’m finally at a point where the weight I lose will stay gone. I have 15 more pounds to go! I’ve done this by cutting down my portion sizes, riding my bike and choosing better meals. I still slip up but for the most part I eat much healthier than what I used to.

1 pound

1 pound gone forever, hopefully! It is very tough to stick to a diet when I love food so much.

30 lbs!

I need to lose 30 pounds by the end of summer, which in Fla, is around the beginning of October. I plan to do this by getting back to the low carb way of eating. I have attempted this effort many times and can’t seem to stick with it! So far in my 3 years of dieting, I have lost 40 pounds and have kept it off, thankfully!

Crawfish has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.
