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.

MorannaA journey to being healthy

It has been a prayer of mine to be at my desired weight.I consider myself to be severely underweight and often feel very alone.I am 5’7 and weight 117lbs. My goal is to gain 40lbs, however my efforts so far have been in vain.I am open to suggestions as I am quite desperate and frustrated by my physical appearance.I find it difficult to accept my appearance and inspite of some telling me that i should my happy with my slim built others make fun of my appearance, it hurts me terribly.I have also as a result of my size been victim to various health problems and if i am to correct them i have to act fast.Inspite of my diminshing self-esteem i have courage and determination that drives me everyday. i know what i want to achieve and with hardwork there is no room for failure, its not going to be easy but i will succeed and so will anyone else if you believe. 6 years ago

Bone1791Suffering on the inside

I’m a 24 y/o mother of two. At this time, i’m 5’2” and 90 lbs. I’ve always been small and petite; weighing anywhere from 115 lbs. to 75 lbs. I’ve always been picked on and teased but I never let it get to me or atleast let it show. I’m tired of being sick! I can’t help myself, if i’m not hungry I can’t force myself to eat, sometimes I just don’t have an appatite. I don’t do it on purpose, but I can’t make myself stop vomitting. Those around me think that this is a game that i’m playing with myself; that I just choose not to eat and make myself vomit. How stupid can one be? I’ve been to the hospital I can’t tell you how many times and i’ve never been helped or diagnosed. Most of the time I feel as though i’m alone because no one will take the time to atleast try and understand or even comfort me when i’m in need. When I get “sick” I can’t eat for days at a time. I have a serious problem and I really need help! I’m ready to take control of my life, starting with my weight problem, so that I can be healthy for myself and my children. 6 years ago

shhsecretJogging again

I’ve been doing strength training again and just started jogging again also. I’m excited about that and am already starting to feel more like my old self again!! I feel more healthy, have more energy, and am also feeling more confident and focused as a result. I want to be able to run for a very long time like I could before! I know I’ll get there again!

Though I really want to gain weight (and have done these things in the past and HAVE gained weight..) I almost feel liberated to be a thin person running. Most of my life people have told me I’m too thin and that I really need to gain weight… that hurts for a female to hear over and over again from so many people – that she needs to change the way her body looks – it’s very damaging and makes me not want to gain weight when people tell me I should. I’m afraid of doing it just to conform to what society thinks I SHOULD be- I want to make sure I’m working on my appearance because I want to, not because anyone else wants me to. Most people don’t see how running could make me gain weight… so when I run and get strange looks or comments, it’s kind of like I’m accomplishing my goal… yet I don’t feel like I’m conforming and gaining it for society. I’m doing it for myself and at the same time, I feel like, me doing this, is like saying “Who CARES what you think?! I’m doing this for ME. 7 years ago
