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.

Deep Breath...

Okay, so I leave tomorrow for a little R&R and am needing a little encouragement. Everyone keeps telling me I look great (better than I did) but when I look in the mirror all I see is an obese 5’0” tall girl. I’m working really hard but we all know how it is when we start getting down on ourselves…Sigh I just hate going home and having to face my thin mom, my thin aunts, and my thin cousins…I’m the only heavy one!! YUK. Alright guys, good luck to all of you, keep on going, and help me along…:o)

A little vIcToRy dance!

I had to get new jeans yesterday…I’m three jean sizes down!!! I’ve only lost 15 pounds since the end of May but I think that some of that may be muscle…In May I was wearing a tight women’s size 11/12…yesterday I got a pair of Old Navy jeans – SIZE 6!!! You guys have no idea how good it feels to be in the single digits again!! Anyway, I didn’t quite reach my goal for the end of June (20 pounds of weight lost) but I just saw yesterday that Jessica Simpson lost 20 pounds in two months while I’ve lost 15 in one – so there! My new goal for Mid-July will be 15 more pounds – that’ll bring me to 130. By August I’d like to be at 125 since this is what I was weighing two years ago…wearing a size 2-4…I’m a muscular girl so getting below 125 will be an unreasonable goal for August…I think that once I get past these two points I’d like to try to get to 110 pounds – my lowest weight since turning 11 and going through puberty!!! Okay guys, wish me luck…I’m starting to feel like I can actually conquer this healthy weight thing…I just have to steer clear of all those delicious glazed donuts….As Homer would say, “Ummmmmmm, Ghaaaaaahhhh, Donuts!”

Thank you guys!

I am so glad I found this forum! You guys are all great and I hope we can all reach our goals!! My goal weight for the middle of July is 130 – so 20lbs more on top of the ten I have already lost!! By August I hope to be at least at 125lbs…so far I’ve been doing really well and just eating three times a day, no snacking, and NOT EATING PAST 7…Seeing that my clothes are fitting me better makes me feel good too…and also seeing the other girls at the gym working on the elliptical machine next to me and seeing that I am actually doing better than them helps me feel like I’m in shape eventhough I’m overweight (yeah, that’s possible). ANYWAY, I’m glad I have you all to help cheer me on – especially when I wake up hating my looks more than anything!!!
