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.

Ugh again!!

Gone even more backwards. Now got 25kg to lose. And until my health is on track I can’t exercise, which makes it harder. But I’m not giving up. I will do this.


Gone backwards. So essentially starting again. Except now I have 19kg to lose. I hope that will be easier to do once Uni is over, as I will be at work more and can use the gym there more often. And I tend to snack on sugary lollies when I’m studying. So I should be able to stop that.


I’ve done well so far this first week. Lost about a kilo and a half. Fingers crossed that all goes well when I go on holiday next week. That always seems to be one of my challenge situations.


Okay – let’s be honest. My starting weight is 83kg. So 18kg should get me down to 65kg. I could be very happy with that!!


I want to:
