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.

PancemasterApps for that

Weight: 285
The other day I got MyFitnessPal for my phone along with Runkeeper. I’m mostly using them for more caloric awareness and portion sizes. I go on walks with my boyfriend, so I monitor how much I exert in doing them.

Staying more hydrated than I have been in awhile. My sleep cycle is pretty normal lately. Health is overall doing well. I’ve been taking my medications regularly for about a month. Skin’s clear- no acne or anything…

Things aren’t bad, overall. Yeah, I’m heavy right now. I have a big box of clothes that no longer fit me. There’s chairs in the back yard I’m too heavy to sit in. Every month is an impossible battle between cravings and sweet tooth longings for sweets and unhealthy foods…

I’m handling it.

I’ve got my bf on my side for support, and my parents are more understanding that it is imperative that I lose weight. I have friends who are also using apps and going to the gym, and I see them losing weight, and they’re fluffy like I am and they’re slimming down. I’m soooo jealous, but I use it to drive me to do what I can for my health and weight.

It’s not just about a number, it’s about my pancreas, my heart, my emotional and mental wellness, my joints, it’s about living. It’s about surviving.

I refuse to be a slave to fast food. I pull the IV of Pepsi out of my veins. I step out into the sun and although I sweat and melt, my determination to live surpasses any transitory need for sweets or comfort food.

Goodbye, soda.
Goodbye, McDonald’s, In N Out, Carl’s Jr., KFC, Jack in the Box, and the rest of you food monsters.
Goodbye, extra sugar.

I’m so ready to feel like a functioning human being for once in my life. 1 month ago

younis123In one week i have lost 5 pounds ;)

It’s only been one week since I started the program & have have already lost 5 pounds. I had tried everything, from exhausting exercises to strict dieting. Nothing seemed to work. I am extremely satisfied with the results I’m getting do soon. I recommend this program to all those who are tired of achieving little to, no results. This program really works!

PancemasterWell, that escalated quickly...

All I have to say is,

10 cupcakes on Super Bowl Sunday

I feel soooooooooooooooo…. shameful for that.

I went ham on those cupcakes. THEY DIDN’T STAND A CHANCE.

I’ve really got to go work out :( 5 months ago


1. Get asthma under control
2. Control allergies
3. Begin a regular exercise regimen
4. Cut back on soda and carbonated beverages
5. Be in control of my emotions
6. Take my medications regularly

Once I can wrangle my own health, I’ll feel better. The weight will come off if it’s meant to. I’m going to the gym to cope with stress and help with my asthma. If I lose weight or trim down in the process, that’s great. But I think the thing I have to work on right now is getting over the number that expresses my mass and feel comfortable in my own skin again. 6 months ago

Welp, guess how many times I’ve been to the gym since my last post. Once. And it’s like, my first month payment is up soon, and I’m sick. I feel like my life is sabotaging me.

I have so many things I want to do, and it seems like all I’m capable of doing with them is talking about how much I want them. It’s so frustrating.

Just gotta… rassle up some money for this next month, and MAKE time to go. MAKE time to formulate a workout plan. Put in effort to eat healthier, drink more water, etc… 8 months ago


I got a membership. What have I done. Now I HAVE to exercise!

Apparently my weight has gotten to a critical mass at 280. Yes, I’m a nice and plump 280. And even though it’s just a number, it just kills my self-esteem. It’s the heaviest I’ve ever been.

People in my life have tried to tell me that I have a weight issue, various times in my life and recently. But know what? There’s no easy way to tell someone. But there are terrible ways to go about doing it.

And if you think the person doesn’t know they’re overweight, you must think they’re dumb. THEY KNOW. You’re pointing out the obvious.

But while there are people in my life that want me to lose weight for reason 1 or reason 2, I will do it on my watch. On my schedule. For me. Not for you. Not because you want me to. So stop wanting me to, and start just supporting me through it. Maybe stop enabling me. 9 months ago
