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.

nothing is going to change

im happy with my body. i think i look good in a bathing suit, and so do other people. its all that matters.
ive given up on getting rid of that little bit of fat by my belly button…its not gonna happen.

im happy so my stomach is fine!


my abs are looking good! for real this time i have this sit up routine that i do like 3 times a day (at least on the weekends) and it is working!


in the lockeroom after school, i was changing for volleyball and one of the girls on my teams looks over and was like “elana, you have a 6 pack”
i was like… um noo, but im glad it looks nice from far away!

oh well. as long as it doesn’t bulge out like it does on fatter people, im fine.

i can see...

hahah not exactly a six pack, but there are little lines that I can see in the mirror when i flex!

and my mom just got an excersize ball! :]
so tonight i am going to do yoga and pilates from a video that came with the ball!

haha yessss.


I stayed after school for a conditioning program thing for all the spring sports.
At the end, this kid who is like the leader of all trackies had us do this 10 minute ab workout!
We had to do all of these different kinds of things for 30 seconds-1 minute each, and my abs were burning!!

but it felt good… :)
