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.

I Am Believing...

10 pounds a month average, in 2010. If I can keep that up, then I will make my goal. I will weigh in the first of the year. After that I plan on weighing in at the beginning of every month. I don’t want to be that obsessed about my weight this coming year. I want to focus more on getting healthy and being fit. With that will come the weight loss :)

Back to this..


Well I went up quite a bit. Just kind of let my weight get away from me, but now it’s time to start new and fresh. I was actually over 300 pounds for a bit which was scary and that pushed me to jump back on the wagon. So right now I’m at 295 and my plan is to go down from there :)

i haven't..

been doing that great over this summer, but I am not going to beat myself up over it. I just got to dust myself off and try again. I went up quite a bit and it’s kind of scary. My problem is always the eating. I exercise but the bad stuff I eat just cancels all that out. I am going to try to get back on track these next few weeks and then I will weigh myself. Oh that dreaded scale!


it has been waaay too long since i have been on here. long enough for the layout to change. well dang.
i gotta stop being lazy and get back on my goals (especially this one)

4 days.. O_o

to complete this goal?

haha, this is not gonna happen. It’s ok, I won’t give up =]

40 pounds to go..

Well I gained for a few weeks. It was really because I was stressing a bit, and eating a bit too much. But I weighed myself yesterday and this past week I have been eating better and I weight trained at least once this week. I’m going to work on fitting exercise back into my schedule. I have lost what I gained plus 3 pounds, putting me right at 240 =]

Can’t wait to get back down in the 230’s. Good luck to everyone!

43 pounds to go...

Today i came in weighing at 243 pounds. Which I am grateful for. Even though it is only 1 1/2 pounds that I lost, it is way better than a gain. I think my eating could have been a little better last week. The only thing I can do now is move on and try better this week.

I can’t believe at the beginning of the year my weight was sitting at 256. And now I am down 13 pounds from that. It feels good.

Good luck to everyone else =]

Jan 13

I came in weighing at 244.5 pounds! Which is a 7 pound lost since last week! I think I might hit my plateau when I reach about 230, cause usually that is when it always happens. But I will try not to let that get me down when that time comes. I’ll keep trying! =]

Good luck to everyone else on this goal!


I was looking at this goal, and I don’t believe I am going to get it completed by the time I have set. But that’s ok, I’ll just do what I can and be proud of that.

I weighed at the beginning of the year, and then I weighed 256 pounds (yes, I know I went up, oooh the holidays).

Then I weighed in today and my weight is 251.5 which is amazing. I was honestly surprised I lost 4 and 1/2 pounds cause even though I have been exercising, my eating wasn’t that great. Hopefully I can try harder this week.

Good luck to everyone!

Weighed myself today...

248 pounds…

I haven’t been trying as hard as I should. Haven’t been exercising as much, but I am getting back on it. And I shall stick to it.

48 pounds to go

It is a lot, but I know I can do it!

Good luck to everyone else with this goal..! =]
