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.

notredamegirl28 days without bread :)

28 days without grains/starches/refined sugar. sticking with this during the holidays has been awesome—instead of gaining weight during wintertime, i’m losing it! 2 years ago


this is surprisingly easy. dairy is way less easy to give up. i’m still eating dairy because my sugar free lattes are the highlight of my day. wheat belly changed my life. 2012 has had two life-changing books: wheat belly and allan carr’s easyway book. really, three—david copperfield changed my life in its own way. 2 years ago

notredamegirlthis goal is worth it

i’m using my success w/this goal to motivate me to give up dairy as well 2 years ago

notredamegirllost weight

almost 10 lbs, crazy!

this is how i’ve done it over 2-ish weeks:

first, i removed all wheat products and refined sugar. i kept eating whatever i wanted as far as dairy (unlimited cottage cheese, yogurt, meat, fruit, veggies).
then, i cut down to one fruit a day (carbs).
then, and this is where i’ve seen rapid weight loss, i’ve started doing portion control. cut out the unlimited dairy. cut out the soda. sticking to around 1500 calories. LOTS of protein, moderate fat, low carbohydrates. lots of vegetables. one fruit a day. drinking water when i’m hungry.

“there’s always another meal.” 2 years ago


it will be easier here because nobody eats bread. however, they all eat a TON of dairy. dairy is a big weakness for me—cottage cheese and yogurt especially, which is probably an indicator that i shouldn’t have it. ideally, i’d quit eating dairy and only have veggies, meat, and my one fruit a day. 2 years ago

notredamegirlKicking ass at this

I was sooo hungry on several of my flights (those rolls looked so good, so did the crackers) I didn’t eat the bread or starches, and I felt great. Really proud of myself. No more wheat belly! No more bagel skin! 2 years ago

notredamegirli miss bread so much :(

walking by pastries is the hardest thing ever. i’m overeating dairy so i doubt i’ve lost weight, but i definitely haven’t gained weight. when i get home, i’ll go on the measurement GS program like my mom. it makes me so happy to live with people that are dedicated to eating healthfully. it makes it THAT much easier. i’m not looking forward to my nearly 2 days in a plane and at the airport—those are my favorite places to binge eat. so i have to PREPARE.

i’ve knocked out nuts, bread, refined sugar, and starch-y vegetables for a week. onward and upwards. 2 years ago

notredamegirl5 days

it’s going to be hard today w/thanksgiving and not eating my favorites (bread, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie). smaller jeans are worth it though… 2 years ago

notredamegirli'm eating too much dairy instead :(

but i THINK i’m less bloated. it’s been four days. 2 years ago

notredamegirli want to stop eating bread

i want to stop eating bread and refined sugar. from now on, “sweet” cravings will be handled with fruit. i’m going to keep eating dairy. we’ll see how my body responds over the next month. 2 years ago
