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.

BethI am

4 pounds down. so… i guess i’m doing something right. I’ll just try to keep it up…for ya know…the rest of my life. 6 months ago

Kdm2014Going down

I’m 10 pounds down, and feeling better than I have in my whole life. I’m putting the right stuff in my body and I’m seeing the changes. I want to lose 10 more pounds to meet my goal. I’m back in the gym and with proper nutrition and supplementation my jeans are starting to fit.

You too can meet your goal, just have your goal in mind and take it bit by bit, day by day and the bigger goal will be reached.

Keeping a positive attitude and having friends/acquaintances support your goals is the missing factor in most lives. 7 months ago


I need to focus on this goal. I need to really put the effort in that it will require, because this is the first step to getting where i want to be overall health wise. In no particular order I need to change or start these habits:

  • exercise a lot more frequently. This is a given, but I’m still having trouble with most exercises because of the pain in my back. But that really doesn’t mean I can’t do ANYTHING, just that I can’t do EVERYTHING. I’ve been doing alright at doing yoga twice a week, but I need to find a way to make that more often, something more like every single day.
  • Eat a ton more veggies.
  • Make my own lunches. I go out to eat a lot more often than I should. Mainly because I love certain places like Chipotle, and really don’t believe it’s all that bad for me. BUT, I need to start making my own lunch so I know exactly how much is in there. Plus, I am sometimes too lazy to get out of my car and when that happens I’m less likely to eat something better for me like Chipotle or a sald from the grocery store next door, and this creates a situation that could just be avoided by making my own lunches to begin with.
  • Speaking of making my own lunches, I need to start writing down what exactly i’m putting in my face. I need to do this to start being more mindful of what I eat, as well as learning what i’m overeating, and learning how to better control calories without skipping breakfast (which makes me very crabby). Just in general I need to be more mindful of what I’m shoving my face full of. And when I’m full, I need to stop. Even if it is my favorite chicken kabob ever. 7 months ago

sunshineyellowNew start

I am just trying to generally be healthier. Time will tell if this leads to any weight loss. I am drinking more water and eating a lot of protein at breakfast. I read recently that women who yo-yo the same 10 pounds during their 20s and 30s are going to have more boob sag. There is no hope for most of us, then. 7 months ago
