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.

Well first i’ll tell everyone what is going on…

I’m 21 years old and me an my partner have just started trying for a baby, we went to the doctors because my period hadnt come for three months and i had symptoms of been pregnant. As it turned out i have PCOS (polycystic ovaries), this may not sound to critical but to me it is, the condition is where small cysts form on the ovaries and stop ovulation, in my case it doesnt allow my body to produce eggs, other side affects are hair growth, acne, cramps, hot sweats and more, in some cases it causes heart disease and diabetes. The worst case senario is some women even find that they are more at risk of cancer.
Now i am particulary worried as cancer has already effected my mum and i dont want to go down the same road, i am booked in to see a specialist on the 5th october but i want to loose weight before i get there and carry on loosing weight after i see her because this can reduce this risk of everything i have mentioned above.
My partner is 31 and e desperatly want to share our love with a child so loosing weight is the first step before i see the specialist

thanks guys

Okay, well I’ve been home more then normal lately & it seems like the only thing to do is to occupy my time is to eat. I’ve put on a few pounds that I’d really like to get off. So I’m starting fresh right here. Any ideas:)? 6 years ago


Thanks to my loving boyfriend’s crazy eating habits and crazyness about fat content I’ve been fast food free (wow what illiteration) since new years! _7 years ago


Working in a canteen all summer, this one wil be tough to accomplish. What else IS there to do but eat on a slow day? :S I’m really trying to meet this goal, but I frustrate myself when I eat junk food without even thinking… 8 years ago
