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.

Lose 30lbs

I’ve been wanting to lose some weight for a long time now, I’m 5”8 and 151 lbs. I know that doesn’t make me overweight as I’m quite tall for a woman, but I’ve put on 30lbs in the last year and a half, most of it being in the last six months as I’ve become settled in a relationship, so I spend most of my nights either out drinking, or sitting infront of the telly with pizza and ice cream! I was much happier when I was 120 and a size 6-8, and I’ve got millions of dresses in my wardrobe that I can’t fit into anymore, some I’ve never even worn. I was complaining to my boyfriend a few weeks ago, and he commented on the fact that I’m not really the thinnest person in the world, which really brought it home to me. I don’t want my boyfriend to start finding my unattractive, so it’s given me the extra kick up the backside I need. I’m not doing it just for him, as it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. So starting tomorrow, I’m determined to get back to my previous weight.


I want to:
