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.

- The Robots.

younis123In one week i have lost 5 pounds ;)

It’s only been one week since I started the program & have have already lost 5 pounds. I had tried everything, from exhausting exercises to strict dieting. Nothing seemed to work. I am extremely satisfied with the results I’m getting do soon. I recommend this program to all those who are tired of achieving little to, no results. This program really works!

Spatz1st month

So, one month later, I find I have lost 2 pounds.
Well, in reality I gained one pound and lost 3 pounds, but it evens out :-)
Now that the digestive problems are slowly getting better, I might have better results. Maybe.
It’s slow progress but progress. 17 months ago


I’ve always been an athlete, but for the past 10 months I have been unable to run due to injury. I’m now 144 lbs. My goal is to drop 15 lbs by May 20 to look good for a university friend’s wedding! Today was day 4. Here we go!!! 18 months ago

SpatzSelf sabotage

The moment my weight is going down I’m having a few chocolates and extras for dinner and lunch.
And pouf, the weight is back on the next day.
I’ll have to take this a bit more serious.

So, to give it a more scientific edge, I started using myfitnesspal.
Never know there were so many calories in pizza.
Oh well.

New week, new luck! 18 months ago


So I bravely stepped back on the scale after the vacation.
Oh well.
It seems I only gained 3 pounds over the last weeks.
So I’ve lost 4 pounds in the last year – well that ain’t the world but at least it’s something.
I’ll reboot that project now and to start I updated my ticker… 18 months ago

April SalleyI need to lose please help

I have been big all my life Its time for a change 23 months ago


Between my hurt knee and my vacation, I managed to gain back the two pounds I’d lost after the last post and gain two more pounds on top of that.

That’s not quite going the way I planned.

I’ll have to be more careful about what I eat, as my exercise routine is rather easygoing at the moment….

Well, on to a new start!

SpatzAfter one month

I’ve regained 1 kilogram rather quick – but I’ve been keeping my weight stable since then.

Now it’s time to restart the goal and have another go at it, I’d like to lose about 3 kgs this time :-)

Starting on the road today…

Spatz5 kilograms down

I have lost (slightly) more than 5 kilograms since I started in February!

That gets me down to the lowest weight I’ve been in 6 years.

Yay me! Celebration! I get to choose a reward now :)

SpatzHuh again

I didn’t weigh myself the last days and stepped on the scale today.I’ve lost another pound, bringing me down to my wedding weight.

I don’t remember doing anything special, aside from my stairs and yoga and cooking myself?

Woohoo! Hooray!

SpatzNew jeans :-)

As my jeans are getting loose, I bought new ones today.
So excited I managed to stuff myself into 30s! They’re very tight, but that will serve me as a motivation to keep it up!

Hooray! 2 years ago


I stepped on my scale today to see how much damage easter had done.

I’ve lost half a pound.

Huh? How did that happen?

Not that I’m complaining, nono, it’s just rather unexpected?

The weight is creeping off slooooowly.

I managed to lose half a pound in the last two weeks.

I’ll try and up my exercise a little as soon as I’m up and good again :)

SpatzAnother half pound gone

but I’m afraid this has more to do with my stressful week than anything else.
I managed to lose 1 cm of my waist.
Perhaps the stairs are to blame :D

SpatzLost half pound :)

Ok that’s not that much but I noticed something:
My favourite jeans are somehow loose. Looser than before.
I need to start taking measures to compare in addition to weight!
Perhaps I’m really getting stronger! 2 years ago

SpatzLearned something new

This week I learned that there is such a thing as not eating enough for weight loss.
For two days I didn’t have a real dinner and a small lunch.
As a result I’m stuck.
I’ll go and exercise some to kickstart my body :) 2 years ago

SpatzBMI 23.9

I’ve lost another half kilo, bringing my total up to 3 kilos.
Jay! Wohoo!
I’m still not really seeing an improvement but I’m finally at my pre-christmas weight.
To celebrate, I’ll get some (much needed) vests. And not something sweet. Or chips. Nono. 2 years ago

SpatzLoss & Gain :(

I managed to lose 0.5 kilo and gain it right back this week :-(
Not quite sure how this happened – too much stress or coffee or is it that I did not exercise much this week?
Hm. Feeling rather low. 2 years ago

Spatz1.5 kilos so far

I lost one kilo this week and my BMI is at 24.4! Whoo, I’m all hopefull – this is really a good start. 2 years ago

Spatz0.5 Kilo

I lost 0.5 kilos since yesterday.
Probably water weight – but I’m happy there’s a good start – as today is my Granny’s 90 birthday and that means a looot of food. 2 years ago

SpatzBMI 24.9

OK, here we go.
It’s a starting point.
No need to hate my body, it has done nothing wrong.
I just feed it the wrong way. 2 years ago

SpatzI don't dare to weigh myself

after the ski holiday extravaganza.
I’ll work up the courage tomorrow in the morning.
