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.

knottyladyGo to Curves 3 Days a week: Done!

I can now comfortably say that Curves is now a part of my routine. 6 years ago

knottyladyGo to Curves 3 Days a Week: Great Start!

I stopped going last year because it was super hot in the summer and they don’t like to turn on the AC. S@#%! Then the AC broke and the heat was unbearable. I started going to another Curves that was never stingy about turning on their AC, but as Curves politics go, I went back to my home Curves.

Being that I needed to add strength training into my workout routine, though, Curves seemed like the perfect option to introduce me back into it.

Adding a new item in my routine is so mentally difficult! But nevermind that – the important part is I got over hurdle of starting it – that itself is half the battle. I am currently working on my second week. (The weather’s also a little cooler, so AC isn’t so much of a problem anymore)

Two more weeks of this and then I can check this off my list! 6 years ago

CharmParticleI need to get more organized...

so I can be sure to accomplish this goal every week. I only went once last week – closed on Labor Day, and I went to needle point class at the church on Wed.

I’ve decided that I will focus on this goal and once I get into a routine, I’ll start on my other goals (walking on the treadmill and diet). It’s really important that I get the exercising done so I can lose weight. 6 years ago

CharmParticleIt was difficult...

but I made it. I didn’t work as hard as I should have today, but I showed up. Yay me!

CharmParticleNot only...

did I get to Curves today, I walked on the treadmill too. Yay me! This is harder than quitting smoking was for me.

CharmParticleDay #1

Well, I didn’t get there three times this week, but I got there today AND I walked on the treadmill. Hopefully I’ll get there next week. Baby steps… 6 years ago


Curves became quite a bore to me, so I canceled my membership. But I am still exercising and going to the gym, just not at curves. 7 years ago


got too bored. Going to a gymn now with child care 7 years ago

cheryllovestoreadDoing well on this goal

Except for my time on vacation, this goal is going well. I am enjoying getting to know other women who come in at the same time that I do. It’s been fun hearing about a planning wedding, a job change, a strong mom-daughter relationship. And, I am feeling better…a bit stronger. I find myself thinking more “healthy” thoughts and trying to eat better. 8 years ago

cheryllovestoreadmoving more

I like the Downtown Curves. Perfect for right after work and the machines are not difficult on my joints. This is really important for my health… I need to move more and build muscle strength. 30 minutes x 3 days a week?? Sounds doable. 8 years ago


Meh, I hate the way curves just puts you in a mindless routine. I like to go to the gym and choose what to go on, and really put in past a 1/2 hour if i so choose… 8 years ago


I had to change my Curves schedule from M-W-F to T-Th-Sa. That’s going to be hard because of Saturday mornings but I think I can do it. I was going straight from work to Curves to school, but it got really overwhelming. I think this schedule will work better. 8 years ago


I began going to Curves on May 22, 2006. Since that time I’ve lost 4 inches, 4 pounds, and 1.5% body fat. My next weigh/measure is July 23 and I hope to have lost an additional 1.5 – 2% body fat by then. I go three times a week and I am going to start supplementing that with 1 day a week of swimming.

Curves is super fun and I love going with my mom. I have really been able to stick to this, which I can’t say at all for other gyms, even free ones. Perhaps especially free ones, since I never feel obligated to go. I also love the chocolate protein shake – it rocks! 8 years ago

Listen closely...It is amazing...

...I love curves…It is amazing how worth it it is. 8 years ago

Listen closely...After therapy

I just couldn’t push myself to go to curves. Ray suggested I stay home tonight I really wanted to go however, I am just plumb wore out from karate class last night. I will go to curves on Friday for sure. 8 years ago

Listen closely...You can do it baby!!!

Tonight is night 2 of 3 times a night. If I do this for 2 months I can remove this from my list. That will be so awesome. 8 years ago

Listen closely...i did it

I went back to curves last night. It was wonderful, as always. 8 years ago

Amandalove curves

I am a college student so I don’t live at home during the school year. Last summer I joined Curves and lost a few pounds. I rejoined almost a month ago and I’ve been going about 3 times every week, but I need to keep it up. I would love to lose 15 pounds…that is my ideal. (but my friends & family would probably say that’s losing too much and I’d be too thin.) Curves is awesome. 8 years ago

Listen closely...New Plan

Okay here is the plan I am going to go to Curves 3 days a week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday instead of going 6 days a week. I think this will be much better for me. That way I won’t become addicted to it. And I won’t have to worry about becoming anorexic again. 8 years ago

Listen closely...Untitled

I have been paying for this membership for 6 months and Have gone a total of 3 times. I know I need to go. I am just so afraid of Being raped again if I lose any weight. I have to get over this irrational fear. 8 years ago


I work at Curves in Western Australia and it is truly a rewarding and enjoyable job. The best thing about it is the fabulous women I get to meet and talk to every day and seeing them reach their goals.
Curves is a fantastic place to make friends and get fit, so get going! Start talking to the lady next to you, you never know who you might meet. <3 8 years ago

angeljcsgurlIt's my time to shine!

I re-joined Curves for the 2nd time last february. I started going 3x a week until April, when I had breast reduction surgery and I stopped going for a while, then when I came back I slacked off a bit and then I got a new job. It was horrible! I never went to curves, I was stressed out every single day for 2 months it was like that, early September I got my old job back and started going to Curves again, on and off again. I decided Im going to buckle down and start going 3x a week no if’s or but’s about it! 9 years ago

JustSewCraftysigh . . .

I joined Curves the end of March and since then I have only been back one time. OK, I did get the flu two days later and I was sick for most of the next month, but still, I just need to get up off my fat butt and go work out. The strange thing is that I feel better after I have worked out, but that fact doesn’t seem to be getting me there any more often. 9 years ago
