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.

this is what i will look like after the weight loss!! I can dig it!



I started exercising 5 times a week and i am currently drinking green tea. I need some drastic and i dont want to get he lapband. This look is not very attactive but I still love ME!

I was forced to take a look at myself...

I was just on the scale and I weigh 282lbs. What made me check? I went to lane bryant to get jeans and the woman asked me what size I wore. The last pair of what whatever I purchase was a size 20. I told her that maybe I needed a size 22 becuase I was about the bust out of those capris like the incredible hulk, they were really killing me. she handed me a pair of jeans that said the size was a 4t (thanks lane bryant for changing the sizes and for helping us stay in denial about our weight). I tryed on the 4t which is really a 24 and it was still tight. dammit what happened to me! its time to get down to business.

growgrowinggrown has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
