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.

Oriana_TaliaWent to SF

Went there, but the cable cars were having issues and we couldn’t ride it as we didn’t have time to wait for them to be up and running! But still, I love San Francisco. And the entire of NW California. Big Sur is one of the most beautiful places on earth. 23 months ago

Bought a gorgeous refurbished victorian rowhome in Lancaster City, PA. Built in 1900, with all wood floors and pocket doors. Finally, my own nest! 23 months ago

Five months down- one to go. This has been hard for me. I have only gotten a couple new pairs of underwear (maybe around 6 pairs) and my husband bought me a pair of converse sneakers for work. Going 6 months without buying clothes, shoes or accessories is more challenging that it sounds, especially for some one who loves fashion. I can’t wait for July 19th!!!! 2 years ago

Oriana_TaliaI did it!

Got a job as assistant manager, making almost 13 an hour! Woo hoo 2 years ago

Finally got a 300 on my Army PT test- sweet! I did 50 pushups in two minutes, 84 situps in two minutes, and 15:00 two mile 3 years ago


I eat plain, non salted instant oatmeal for breakfast and dinner with agave nectar or splenda in it, usually around a cup and a half of oatmeal at a time…I drink fat free smoothies in between as snacks.
I eat steamed veggies too once in a while too…I don’t eat as much protein as I should, I recommend eating plain chicken breast or canned tuna.

I also eat alot of fat free plain greek yogurt..Chobani or Fage. You can get greek yogurt at most grocery stores now.

Also I notice that not eating anything past six at night really drops the pounds.

Also drink lots of coffee with hardly any sweetener and skim milk…it speeds up your heart so you lose weight faster and makes you more energetic. 3 years ago
