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.

I Did It

I ran my first 5K on June 22, 2013. It was a 5K Zombie Run and I had a blast. Since then I have also run the 5K Warrior Dash.

Lost some More Weight

I am down to 133 which is 2 pounds less than my pre-pregnancy weight. I still would like to get down to about 120/125, but I’m not going to kill myself doing it. It is hard to find time to exercise and watch what I eat while trying to work and take care of a baby who is going nonstop.

Paid Off Hospital

Another $300 gone! I paid off my hospital bill from having my baby last Feb. At least it’s gone before he turns one.

Re-Adding this goal

I have re added this goal because I have been really bad about drinking water lately. It has been sodas all the time and it is really bad for me. I need to lose some weight too and I think cutting back on the soda and drinking more water will help a lot with that.

This Year

I have been putting this off for years and hopefully this is “the year” that I finally complete this goal. MY DH wants to do one in the spring, so maybe I can get motivated to do it too.

Marking as Done

I’m marking this as done because even though I have had some good and bad times since my last entry, things are really good in my life right now. I did battle with some PPD after my little one was born earlier this year, but things seem to be going better now. DH and I still have some problems, but doesn’t everybody? Overall, my life is pretty damn good. I have a husband that I love and who loves me, we have a wonderful 17 year old son who is a really good kid, an 11 month old baby that amazes me daily, good jobs, a home and food in the fridge. I am truly blessed and finally at a place in life where I can say that I am happy.

Just did a rough count and was astounded to see that we only have about $3500 left plus about $2500 on the car! I am so excited right now!

Well we did end up buying my DH a truck after my last post and that pushed this goal back some. Hoping to be done early in the coming year. I am settling with one credit card and am using my Christmas bonus to get rid of a couple of other bills. Hopefully by March we will be just about done with the car and be able to just start putting money into savings.

Finishing in 2012

I started my dental work a couple of months ago. I am already $1500 in and still have some work to get done(this is with insurance). My bridge will be finished on Jan. 3rd and then I will start on the cavities. I think that is about all that needs to be done, but I still have several cavities, so we are looking at a few hundred dollars more still.

#100 (FINALLY)

Finishing goals!

I have been working on this goal for years and am finally finished. I rushed it a little at the end, but it gives me a great sense of accomplishment.

My life being on track.

Things are really looking up. We are getting financially secure finally, our son will be 1 in Feb., and my life in general has been good. I love when things are on track.

Having a job.

I complain about working a lot, but I am really lucky to have a semi easy, steady job that pays well. Many people are out of work so I shouldnt complain about something that a lot of people would love to have right now.

Me time

It doesn’t happen much since my son was born, so I really cherish “me” time these days.

8 Months

Well, I made it the 6 months and my little one is almost 8 months now. He has had some formula, but it has always been mixed with breast milk. He doesn’t really ike the formula too much, but at least he takes enough to take a weight off of me. He is also eating more solids now too. I guess I’ll try to make it to a year, but I just don’t know yet. The pediatrician was more than happy with how far we a had made it at the 6 month point, so I guess I can be round of myself now.

Five months...and Going Strong

We have made it a little over 5 months already. Little one will be 6 months on August 1st and I’m not sure if I even want to stop then. It is still a little overwhelming at times, but I think I will miss the bond a lot when I do stop and I’m just not ready for that yet. No matter what I don’t plan on going past a year.

Another 3 months

I just finished my 3 month goal and now I’m going for 6 months. There were a few times during the first 3 months that it seemed a little overwhelming, but we made it and things have gotten a lot easier and we have a great routine going. I am so proud that I can give this gift to my little one.
