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.

Week 1 -

Well, it’s been 1 week getting back in shape. I’ve been keeping my calories topped at 1,200 a day, didn’t get to lift any weight due to my busy schedule but I got to jog 3 days this week 20-30 minutes each day. So far about 2 pounds lost since my last post.

I cut out all fast food, junk food including chips, candy etc., I’ll have an occasional gulp of Diet Cherry Coke when I wanna immitation sugar fix.

So far so good, and for anyone thinking about or just started dieting, the first 3-4 days are the hardest, you’ll have urges to just say “Look, one chocolate bar isn’t gonna hurt”... Don’t do it. Day 5, 6, 7, etc. Your body craving any sweets, etc is gone, now it’s all mental but it’ll be easy.

The past couple of days I haven’t been really hungry compared to the first 3 and now I think this’ll be no sweat at all.

And maybe it’s just me but I think I already notice a difference in my sexiness…

Post in a few days..

Quit Smoking
Quitting New Year's 2007!

Started smoking around 14 on and off until 19, quit for 2 years cold turkey, moved from NYC to IN and started smoking again for about a year. Quitting New Year’s again cold turkey (only way to do it) No if, and’s, but’s about it. And I’m going to take out ALLLLLLLLLLLLL my craving frustration for the first 2 weeks (those are the really bad ones) right on this site… so they’ll be many flames and CAPS-LOCK keys being jammed, but gotta do it. Only dopes smoke

The Journey Begins

Height – 5’11
Current Weight – 220-230 (I need to buy a scale to make sure what it is)
Goal Weight – 160

I found this site and decided it’s going to be my extra little motivation to get on this diet and finally stick to it until I go allllllllllllll the way. I’ll be updating my progress/weight loss weekly, take new pics, and see what happens. Will I fail miserably and throw in the towel after a couple weeks (I don’t think so) or will I become one handsome, hunky, man. Only time will tell.


I want to:
