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.

GorgeousGoddessClaire's at The Long Beach Museum

Ohhhhh I just had the yummiest salmon at Claire’s last night. I’ve gotten away from eating fish, so this was **wonderful. mmmmm …. the sautéed vegetables were just as amazing. Can’t wait to go back! 18 months ago


I came up with an excellent idea on my walk today. Since I started reading labels again but I’m still eating the junk I decided to go around the house and label everything bites nutritional content. I’m using different colored paper to focus on the main nutritional value about the cookies is label sugar, eggs are protein bread is carbs eccentric cetera. ruthless and honest with the nutritional content with what I’m eating. it will be interesting to see how much sugar is in the house. yikes ! 2 years ago

GorgeousGoddessI'm so proud

I’m so proud of myself. In the checkout lane of Trader Joes.. you know where they have all the goodies before you check out, and I thought my want some chocolate. I looked at the chocolate bars for a minute, told myself I shouldn’t do it, reached out and actually started to put 1 in my basket, and paused. It was that second when I realize that I really shouldn’t do it and that I had a choice. So I decided not to do it. Right there and then I said I’m not going to do it and put it back. It felt great I know I made the right decision. Every one around me smiled too. 2 years ago


Time to be honest.. I’m going so backwards on this goal.

This is what I ate today (pic)

I keep saying I want this, I need to find a way to get congruent with it. My habits and my environment aren’t helping.

I need to /want to adopt “skinny girl” habits. I think that will make a big difference.. being aware of what I’m eating, when, and how.. eating light, healthy, minimal sugar.. Need to do it. 2 years ago

GorgeousGoddessthank god for Trader Joes!

I’m SO proud of myself for staying in and cooking! Boy, I really had to fight the urge to go out to dinner (one of the ways I pamper myself :) ... I stopped and consciously reminded myself that I had food in the frig and thar it was going to expire. I’m so proud that I caught the habit & made a conscious choice. :) 2 years ago
