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.

sugar in tea

I have stopped putting sugar in coffee and I also stopped putting sugar in tea. I have stuck to that. Also, most days I eat breakfast [even if just a breakfast bar], eat far less chocolate, we only eat ice cream if we go out for it, and still no beef or pork or cold cuts or eggs at home.


Less beef, less pork, no sugar in coffee!

We no longer eat beef or pork at home and I rarely have it in other places. About a month or two ago, I stopped using sugar in my coffee.



I now am monitoring myself to see if I am really hungry when I want to eat or if it is something else like thirst. I am creating a healthier relationship with food. ~sapphoq


I have beebn cutting back on the amount of junk I was eating. Now I am also eating breakfast everyday—even if it is a cereal bar. sapphoq

less candy

With less beef, I have found that my cravings for sugar are decreasing.

I am not sugar-free nor am I candy-or chocolate-free.
I am eating less of it.

I am also losing a tiny bit of weight. That is a nice benefit. Yet I try to keep my mind on being healthy, rather than the numbers on the scale.


breakfast and less beef

I am slowly starting to drink juice and eat something for breakfast.
At home now, we don’t eat beef, pork, or coldcuts.
I have been feeling a bit better and am actually losing weight.
It took a long time for my eating habits to get unhealthy so it will take effort to fix em.
