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.

Lose 15 pounds before leaving for Basic Training

unravelledhem3 pounds gone!

I have lost 3 pounds so far and still have 30 days before I leave, so if I can average around 3 pounds a week than I will meet my goal! I ran everyday this past week with the exception of yesterday, which is helping with my endurance as well as weight management. I am really surprised with how fast time is flying – I only have 3 weeks left at my civilian job and then a week to wrap things up at home before I leave! Wish me luck :D 3 years ago


I am already within the weight guidelines for my height, but I would like to lose a little more, so I am not worried about this when it comes time to leave in almost 6 weeks! I believe this goal is realistic and I should be able to reach it by tracking my daily food intake and continuing to exercise. 3 years ago
