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.

Number1MekoA free tummy tuck would change my life

I am quickly approaching 40 and my goal was to be physically fit & healthy by then. After 3 children, numerous knee surgeries, a tubal ligation, and a hernia repair surgery (helping add weight & kill muscles), & 3 hernias in my abdomen that make nearly impossible to walk or do most any exercise, that goal seems impossible. Its been almost a year since we’ve completely changed our diet but without the ability to exercise it doesn’t help much. It also discourages my family from exercising as they should. The ONLY way to permanently repair the largest gastrointestinal hernia is with abdominoplasty but financially its impossible. This surgery would let me exercise & live the healthy lifestyle we are trying to lead. 2 days ago

blueskys101My Tummy Tuck Dream

Hello everyone I’m 30 and a mother to 3 beautiful children who are my pride and joy and indeed my world. Being able to become pregnant and have a child is one if not the greatest thing in life. But they fail to tell you your body will change and especially your stomach. It’s enough to deal with stretchmarks, heart burn, a growing and stretching stomach but just add your stomach never being the same again,lol.. I wish I had the means to go and get my tummy tuck and feel more confident and boost my self esteem but I don’t have thousands of dollars to do that. It would be awesome to win this tummy tuck contest, it would be like my mother’s day, wedding anniversary and birthday present all together ;) 5 days ago

mandamo8480 lbs down, but so is the extra skin :(

I’m turning 30 this week, I’ve had 3 kids all c-sec’s, and over the past couple of years I have dropped over 80 lbs. 228 to 140! I’m so greatful for what I was able to accomplish and it was something that I didn’t think I’d actually be able to find the will power to do. Unfortunately I have all the extra saggy skin left over that is impossible to get rid of. What I need is a full body lift as my body now looks a lot older than it should at my age. To win a tummy tuck would be a dream come true! 1 month ago

mommybellyI've Tried it all!

I’m a 37year old single mom of 2. I’ve tried it all, working out 5days a week while working and attending school full time. Also raising my children. My stomach still sags and won’t go away. I have been able to save enough to pay for a tummy tuck, but I’ve tried and numerous occasions. I really want this to make me feel better and look better. I’ve raised one child and has never been able to wear a swim suit and would really love to, even if just once. Please choose me! 2 months ago

Fionamcconnell07Please choose me

I’m 16 years old I have recently lost a lot of weight. I have lost five stone in the last 8 months and because of my size before I have been left with lots of loose skin. I would love the chance to win this as it would help me out a lot I’ve been told of doctors the only way the loose skin will go away is if I get surgery, something a 16 year old girl cannot afford. To lose all that weight It took everything I had and to be left at the end of it still flabby has destroyed any sort of confidents I thought I was building. I really hope I win this it would benefit me so much and finally get what I have always wanted… To be a pretty girl. 2 months ago
