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.

Hosnexa great tip for everyone who's willing to achieve this goal

I feel it’s a must to share experiences and what we’ve been through with other people,i believe that with sharing my goals and what i did to achieve them makes me really satisfied with my self and it boosts me to help the people out there to achieve their own goals too.
So,here we are i was suffering for the last year from looking to my self in the mirror and seeing all that pounds of over weight getting out of my jeans actually I’ve been wearing the same pair of 11 size jeans for more than two years..i said to my self whether i decide to walk through the pain just once to shape my body or i will walk through it every single day seeing my self this way in the here’s what happend i remember that i woke up in a sunday morning and i checked the internet for a fat loss product to commit my self to it and after a couple of hours i had a good feeling about one prodct that i saw,i decided to purchase it and to try it,and that’s what i did i just stick to it’s plan i was really surpised of the way it works with’s only a few weeks and i witness my first body transformation through it’s steps.

I really advice anyone who’s willing to set a goal of losing a few pounds to try it,it’s a really good motivator.

sierra_dreamrFunny thing about life

is that areas of your life you don’t tend grow weeds or in this case my waistline.
I stopped using 43 things 2 1/2 years ago or there abouts. In that time I actually lost the last 10 of 27 pounds from my prepregnancy weight by nursing for a year, exercising and eating well, then gained back 15 in the past 18 months as I focused my energy in other areas.
It’s comforting to know that I am capable of shedding the weight a frightening 52 pounds total, but reflecting on this arch illustrates the importance of maintaining focus.
I hope (and will take actions to achieve) a healthy 145 weight by Christmas. 5 months ago

I wanted to change the way I look to fit into what someone wants me to be like. If it was health related I’d still continue but to look skinny because he was used to that. No. I am me,this is how I am. Take it or leave it. After a lot of difficulty I have started to be comfortable with myself. I love myself and have embraced my look now. So back off all you haters. 5 months ago


According to the scale, I’m now about 9.8 stones (from 10 stones). That’s the lightest I’ve ever been in weeks. Just eating less, no exercise yet. I need to work on my tummy. 5 months ago

true_blueNeed to make time to exercise

I’ve been eating less, but I need to make time to do an hour of Zumba for at least three days a week. I hope it is still possible to lose 20 pounds or maybe even 2 stones before the year is up. Looking at before and after pictures of people who have lost weight really helps to keep me motivated. 5 months ago

true_blueBack on track

Slowly losing the weight I’ve gained in the past few weeks. I’m trying to cut down on my food intake. I really need to stop making unhealthy food choices. I’m also thinking of doing toning up exercises on the Wii Fit. 5 months ago

true_blueStarting over again

Messed up, gained 2 pounds, starting over again… It’s been two days that I’ve successfully eaten under 1,200 calories. (I am guessing it must be under 1,200 calories.) Yesterday, I literally starved myself so that I could indulge in rum and raisin ice cream. But today I had a healthy lunch of mackerel and potatoes… I should do that more often. 6 months ago
