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.

AKStarting weight?

When I put this on here I didn’t mention how much I weighed to start. I was probably 150 so my goal is: 135 lbs. 7 months ago

No point buying new clothes when it’s healthier anyway to just lose the weight. 7 months ago

In the past, whenever I have wanted to lose weight, it was because I felt like I could be in better shape, but now I’ve gotten to the point where I’m actually overweight, well almost, BMI wise. It’s embarrassing because I have lost weight successfully before and I know how to. I remember the amazing moment of looking in the mirror and feeling happy with what I saw. Now, I can barely fit into my jeans and I always feel like I have nothing to wear. I don’t want to spend money on buying bigger clothes. I used to run marathons and now I tend to walk instead of running. My sister lost weight doing Jillian Michaels, but it’s not my favorite. I just don’t know how I gained so much weight in the past few months. I’m at the highest weight I’ve ever been and I am so unhappy with my body. I have 30 pounds to lose, but 15 for now. 9 months ago

kerfuffled154. It only took a year to lose 1 pound.

It’s one thing to fail to reach your goal, it’s another to have a written record.

Well now I guess I’m more motivated. I’m starting a new crappy job in a week and a half and I don’t want to buy a whole new fat wardrobe. I’ll have to get at least some new pants though but hopefully over the next couple of months I can get close enough to my non-sloth weight that I can use most of my old work wardrobe.

I wish my motivation didn’t have to always come from some situation that comes up that essentially forces me to really work towards a goal but that always seems to be the way. 9 months ago
