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.

AimeeThe old plateau

I lost about a pound and now I’m stuck. Time to stick to my fitness app, say no candy (my weakness!), and limit my wine intake to a couple glasses per week. Come on now, it’s almost Christmas! 12 months ago

Hippie_MelDay 12- 1.4 pounds down

Hey guys. So it’s taken me 11 days to lose 1.4 pounds, which is a little pathetic, but I’m trying my best. I have a time limit for this goal now- I want to have lost at least 5 pounds by 26th December (Boxing Day!). Hopefully I will manage this through:

Eating healthily- small breakfasts and lunches, and trying to eat less fat and less meat for my dinners.

Exercise- I am doing about 60 sit ups 6 times a week (on every day except Sunday) and 2×9 mile brisk walks a week.

skipped on brekkie and not sure whether i’ll have time for lunch today, and a healthy kidney bean curry with rice for dinner- hoping I will complete this goal as soon as possible!! 12 months ago

Okay, I’m only 3 days into using it, but I’m really liking this app. The change I noticed immediately is that I am much less likely to eat candy if I have to log it. So for 3 days I’m doing great! Let’s see how I keep it up. . . 14 months ago
