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.

Lose 20 pounds

I am 35 percent fat. I am 35 percent fat. I went to a dietician and she told me that I am 35 percent fat. More than a third of me is fat. I have to start taking this more seriously and start watching my weight. She said I need to reach 22 percent fat and that would mean losing 20 pounds….


Finally- On frday i finally want to the gym- granted I only did 20 min and the 70 year old next to me joked at me- but i haven’t been to the gym for over a year- so this is defintely good! I also did not buy any junk food over the weekend! YAY!!


So I didn’t go to the gym… I had chocolate mousse for dessert,luckily today is a Jewish fastday…

The war must begin!!!

Ok, after getting really skinny last summer- and then gaining everything back this past year, and being so depressed over everythng that has gone wrong, I should defintely dothis so I will feel better about myself… It actually seems so much easier than my other goals… Plus if I actually want to achieve my first goal of getting over my Ex – and eventually dating other people I might as well look the part. I think I weigh something around 160 pounds- so there is defintely work to be done. Short term goal- Go tomorrow to the gym and not snack!


I want to:
