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.

Maintained good BP for 2 weeks without Meds. Going to still monitor, as it is still slightly high some times, so I want to make sure it gets even better – but I am DONE with this goal. I AM MED FREE! 15 months ago

Keep walking! Keep eating apples and carrots and other good things! Yay, me – I’m doing it! No meds! Just eating healthy and doing a lot of walking! 15 months ago


Without meds. Diet and exercise are working. 16 months ago

kmom2468Blood Pressure good for giving blood

Still a little high, but low enough to qualify to give blood! 16 months ago

kmom2468A year and I STILL am not off of them

Last few weeks I’ve upped my exercise times, and it is really showing. Went back to tracking weight vs blood pressure on a spread sheet again, and that seems to be the best method for me. I like to see the trend lines on the graph. Something about being a business analyst, I think. Gotta chart those KPIs. :) 16 months ago

kmom2468BP in the green two days

And without PB meds. I haven’t lost much weight (after having gained it back during the move) – but I’ve been exercising a lot, and it is showing! Most days I still have to take a half a pill, but I’m getting more and more days where I need only a quarter or none! On my way! 2 years ago

kmom2468I DO really need my 1/2 pill :-(

I forgot to take my half pill one day, and my BP was definitely higher than with it. At the very highest end of “normal.” So, I will have to keep working on the weight and keep on the 1/2 pill for a bit longer. But at least it’s only 1/2 pill now and my BP wasn’t wildly into the red zone. 2 years ago

kmom2468Down to half a pill

Lost 10 lbs; bp looked good during my last doctor’s visit. He said to start using 1/2 pill and see how it goes. My home bp monitor says looking good!

Need to keep exercising and losing weight and keeping the salt out of my food. 2 years ago

kmom2468Nothing losing 30 lbs won't fix

I’m still in the relatively mild stage, so now is the time to act. I am so bad at remembering pills, so if I want to get rid of them, it’s time to pay for the sins of my youth and 1) eat right 2) exercise … and try to mellow my Type A personality out a bit more. :-) New Year. New Life. And we’re off and running! 2 years ago
