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.

Sorry I was gone so long.

I have been spending some of my time at another site, it’s called It’s a pretty cool site for setting up your own support groups. I have discovered a wonderful product in my program, it’s called liftoff, has anyone tried it? It is a large tablet that dissolves in water. It helps with focus, concentration, and short-term memory. It’s great for giving you energy, has 0 calories, o sugar, only 1 carb, and it burns 90 calories everytime you drink it. It really helps my son with his ADHD. I have been using it for a little while now, and only when I went without it for a few days did I realize how much it was helping me. I felt horrible, and didn’t want to exercise, that won’t happen again, now I have plenty. Good to hear from everyone again, I have lost 3 more lbs since my last entry.

Own my own business
This is a scary thought.

I wanted to lose weight right, so I started a program, that is a word of mouth industry(networking). I’ve lost a lot of weight, and can’t help talking about it, as a result of this, all kinds of people that I know want to use this program. The company says that I can sale their products for them at a discount, keep the difference, and if I sale enough, they will pay me a percentage of what anyone I bring into the business sales, for the rest of my life, along with still making a profit. It sounds like a good business, but I’m scared to step out like that. They have it set up where there really is no risk, but I don’t feel comfortable asking people to buy something. The ones that want it is okay, but a salesperson, I just don’t know. Tell me what you think.

I reached the 30 lb mark......

Okay acually I kicked it’s butt. Is it possible for the stupid line, to sit in the middle. What do you call that, 30 1/2 lbs, 30.5 lbs, well anyway who cares right, soon it will be a memory. I can’t believs how well I am losing this weight that I have been struggling with for so long, I wish I would have tried this after my first child. Well I just can’t help but be excited, not only for me, but to hear that so many of you are doing so well too. Keep up the good work.
