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.

after a few years away, I'm back

I am back!
Married, with baby (and baby weight).

I used this site years ago to figure out how to get myself on track. So here I am again.

20 pounds.

My birthday is in May.

I don’t want anymore tears about this.

worked out with one of the girls from work yesterday morning

And kick boxing class is tonight! Weeee

weighed myself

I weigh ( ( 9.

Worked out for an hour with the trainer. 30 minutes of cardio after that.

Gut be gone dammit

gained back the two pounds I lost


It’s all the damn beer I consume on the sailboat. This boyfriend is bad for my diet. I think I need to take control and make dinner at my house more often.

personal training appointment on Monday`

professional assistance to whooping my ass.

I'm a badass hiking mamacita

Tiger Mountain. Wooohaaa!

Next week, it’s Mt. Si. That one should whoop my ass proper.

this is a sub goal to the larger one

I’m racing the new boyfriend to lose 15 pounds. The winner gets to go shopping on the loser’s dime for some sexy new clothes.

We started yesterday. I think I might get my butt kicked on this one. I think I have started to date someone as competitive as I am. But the upshot is I have someone to do this with me as a team and hold my lazy ass accountable.

I battled the afternoon sugar craving and won today

Woohoo! This is huge, because the more good progress the easier it is to be healthy, and sleep well, and do all the things I need to do.


And at this rate, I might even get to wear this fabulous pair of pants I bought last year but couldn’t wear because I can’t zip them. I’m about 10 lbs away from being able to comfortably wear them in public.

lost another pound!

That’s 3. in a week and a half.

17 more to go. If this same pace keeps up, it should be somewhere around the first week of September. Just in time for a business trip to San Diego.



Lost two pounds.
