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’m back to 127, I was up to 133..need to keep focused

5.5 lbs

5.5 pounds in 18 days I am becoming a fat mammal….14.5 pounds to go…

4 lbs.

up 4 lbs. in 8 days, sure some of it is fat but I need fat on my frame, I just feel more solid 16/bs. to go…consistent eating is the key…every 3 hours…

up 2.5 lbs in a week

I simply added a breakfast shake in the morning, actually in the shower so I drink it as I’m half asleep, I have a whey shake at 10 and again at 3 pm. lunch and dinner are the same, and a little more food just before bed time…I’m sure it’s almost all fat because I only lifted once last week…I promised myself not to weigh myself for a month but my wife goaded me into it, she looked at the weight not I, I did tell her only to tell me if I gained some weight…2.5 lbs man…I can reach my goal of 20lbs in th 12 weeks…yeah You must eat, eat, eat and eat everyday….it’s the only way I never thought I could do it, I have been the same damn weight for years….


so I smoke, and I’m trying like almost every other smoker to stop, so here’s the idea… when I quite smoking I can count on weight gain and a longer life I need to work more of goals so that they overlap like this….thanks to Argh for the idea

next week

I plan on starting the wieght training part of my plan next week…


I have increased by intake by 500 calories a day…but I ended up puking on Sunday morning, I think I overloaded my body…I’m still having a hard time getting breakfast down…coffee, cigs no problem real food issue..

gotta eat breakfast

I need to wake up earlier so I can stomache breakfast, snacking going ok and so are the whey protein shakes.


eating is the hardest part to gaining leam muscle mass…I’ve increased my caloric intake by 700 caloires started drinking milk at every meal and really eating good breakfast, lunch, dinner, even snacks this time, got my whey protein shake handy…here we go 20 pounds in 12 weeks…well it’s a goal at least.
