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.

L CHiking

Seems like a good mix of strength, endurance & cardio. We even have a nice training loop in the neighborhood.

Hubby & I went on our first trip to Sipsey Wilderness Area last weekend. I loved being back in the woods… the sounds, the scents, the visuals. We’re going back this summer for sure because there were at least a dozen little swimming holes with soft sandy beaches… in shades of aqua & sea green! It’s AMAZING! 2 years ago

L CGetting better...

Taking care of myself & getting healthy turned out to be a much better goal than losing weight.

After more than a year of compromised immune function, I’m on the mend. It’s weird, but when my immune system got better, the weight started melting off. I’ve lost 15 pounds without even trying. 3 years ago

My living situation is still unhealthy.
I have decided to rent out a room in this grand house I can barely afford to keep. I will be losing some privacy, but my door still has a lock, so, this is the first clear step towards moving, having people over, paradoxically funny:-))) 4 years ago

L CChanging up our diet...

Hubby’s doc suggested some changes that, for me, basically mean eating less red meat & simple starches. He’s finally taking my pleas for more fish & occasional vegetable proteins to heart. Yay. 4 years ago

L CDoc says it's time...

for me to go back to the gym, but instead of starting with a bodybuilding program, he suggested that I focus on endurance for at least a few months. The immediate target is 30-45 minutes of either fast walking or circuit training 3-5 times a week. So far I’ve had two days of walking & today was my first circuit training class. It was tougher than I thought it would be - which may be proof that it’s the right place to start.

Hopefully, before 2011, I’ll be back on a regular weightlifting program, only this time I think I’m going to hire a good trainer to get me started. I’ve lifted for most of my life, so I KNOW what to do, but I tend to push myself hard, and that’s not going to work in my favor while I’m bouncing back from a year of illness. 4 years ago


I am really into this now. I din´t even pause on Chisrtamas and did a great worout Jan 1st.
I did not meet my Yoga goals, but alas, I did not have a guru to guide me trogh it, so I need to look for classes that are easily reachable and affordable. I trust 2010 I can get a Yoga master! (Or will the Yogui get me?) 4 years ago

I think my exercise and health goals have also shaped up a better finantial future for me. I have not yet given up smoking, but have much reduced the qt of ziggies, as I am exercising a lot more, even walking large distances. I am really glad I added this goal because it is not about thin, is about fit and energized. It is about battling stress and about life and laughter, enjoy!

I bought this tiny shrimp (frozen and pre cooked, only stimied it a little, mayo and ketchup (sugar free) and half juice of limón (mexican lime). Serve with baked nachos, lovely Sunday breakfast! 5 years ago
