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.

January 8, 2010 will mark my 3 1/2 year point on this goal. I feel good about the progress I have made so far.

Unfortunately recently I have gained some weight due to eating out too much. My New Year’s goal is to repair the damage.

I think I have gained the weight much more slowly than I would have had I kept on eating sugar.

21 months

I’m approaching 21 months of being sugar free. I’ve also managed to reduce the amount of Splenda I eat.

I’ve got a long way to go to reach four decades, but I’m still hanging in there with my goal.

eighteen months

I have now been sugar free for eighteen months. It was a bit difficult during the holidays. I gained a little weight over Christmas anyway, but I have already taken it off.

46 Weeks

I have now been sugar free for 46 weeks. I’m getting closer and closer to my first year. Losing and maintaining weight has never been easier. People rarely offer me sugary treats anymore. They did at first, but now I hardly ever have to make a decision to say “no”.

sugar free progress

This goal will take many years to complete, but I want to report my progress of 302 days so far. I’m getting close to my one year mark. Cheers to all with the same goal. It’s a great new life and maintaining my weight is so much easier. I’ve lost almost 11 pounds since I started this goal last July. I am now at my ideal weight or a little below.


I’ve stopped eating sugar for 279 days. That’s over nine months. My goal now is to continue for four decades or more.

KittenKitty has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.
