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 10 lbs (read all 2 entries…)

1st august is fast approaching and I haven’t lot any weight- in fact, I have put on a few pounds and now I weigh 9 stone. I want to lose 10 lbs over the next 10 weeks before I start university. I want to follow the Gi diet and refrain from bingeing. No quick-fix diets- they don’t work in the long term!

My goal for 1st August is 8 stone 12.


Weigh 8 stone 3 lbs

I’ve been binging, and so my weight has gone up!
Not massively, but I want to lose half a stone (7 lbs) and weigh 8 stone 3 lbs (115 lbs) before 1st August 2008.

lose 10 lbs (read all 2 entries…)

I want to lose 10 lbs- I’m currently 8 stone 10 and I wnato to be 8 stone in time for August 1st. To do this I’m going to:

1. cycle to work
2. eat 100-1200 calories per day
3. weigh myself evenry Monday (NOT every day!)

I expect this will take me about 4 weeks, ut of course- it may take longer. And I want to at healthily, not starve/binge/starve/binge.
