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.

birth control...

aahhh! This damn birth control is making gain weight soooo fast. I’ve gained so much in only a month. Im worried I will not be able to stop. aaahhh!


SO I weighed myself the other day and I was 5 lbs heavier, then I went to the doctor and got weighed. The scale said I weighed 5 lbs more….SOooooo yeah, basically weight 10 lbs more than I thought. Not cool! I havent exercised in a while and Ive been eating like crap. Im just so busy lately that I cant exercise and I often buy unhealthy food. AAhhhhh, I gotta stop!

not doing so good

eerrr. I put on some weight, and I feel like a whale. Even though Ive lost some weight in the past im still fat. Like im not trim and muscular. I just feel like a peice of flab walking around. I cant even look at myself in the mirror, let alone anyone else see me. I FEEL GROSS!

Another 2 pounds!! woohoo

131 lbs now. 16 more to go

Lost 2 more pounds

Yay! Im down to 133 now! My goal is 115, since im only 5’3 I think thats a good goal for me. 18 more to go, woohoo


Im going camping this weekend, and Im really nervous about wearing a swimsuit. Im going with my skinny, pretty friends, and a whole bunch of guys I’ve never met. AAAHHHHH I just tried on a bikini and started crying, I look horrible. I NEED TO LOSE 30 LBS!!!! I hate always being the fat friend, it’s really sad. I gotta start working out again.

Losing weight again

Well, I’ve always been abit on the chubbier side. Last may I made a commitment to lose weight and I did. I lost 35 lbs. I started slacking off again around November, just maintaining the weight. But now I still got 25 lbs to lose to get to my goal weight! So, A year later have got to commit myself again to lose weight. Im sure I can do it, just not as motivated this time around.

chelychely has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
