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.

My stats

Starting weight 156lbs
Current weight 146lbs (Yey! Lost 10 lbs!)
Goal weight 126lbs
Height 5’ 5.5”

It’s taken me 6 weeks to lose the first 10lbs. At the same rate, I will reach target by mid-September.


I have already lost 10 pounds through a combination of eating more healthy food, controlling my portion size and exercising 4 times a week. I feel great for it but my goal weight is still a bit further away.

I have been overweight ever since I was a teenager. I’ve never been slim but spent a lot of my adult life at the top of the ‘healthy weight’ range for my height but still feeling lethargic, sluggish and fat. Most people don’t notice and think I’m already slim-ish.

I’m determined to be properly slim. I want to improve my energy levels to reach my other goals in life and feel good about the body I’m in. To lose another 20 pounds would have me in the lower healthy weight range and I’d be slimmer than I’ve ever been as an adult.

It’s exciting to think about and I’m absolutely convinced I can do it.
