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.

audreymayI am desperate

I am desperate. My name is Audrey I am a 24 year old mother of two beautiful girls ages 5 and 2. They make me feel beautiful. but when I look in the mirror I just don’t see it. when I was younger in high school I was bullied because of my teeth I have a huge gap in my front teeth so I try and cover my smile. They gap is big enough to stick a straw in. I was bullied because of my teeth as well as my hair. my hair isn’t so bad now I had frizzy uncontrollable hair, now I get it relaxed. but my teeth are still a major issue. since I have had my two children due to breast feeding them both my breasts are not like they use to be they are not perky at all they are quite droopy. I have had surgery on my right breast twice due to the fact that I have Fibroadenoma I have had two scares of breast cancer. also my breasts seem to have shrank in size. and no matter how much I try and lose my tummy when I stand up I cant do it. I only weigh 115 pounds but I have had two c sections and I cannot lose the little stomach I do have . and I have quite a bit of stretch marks as well . I hate looking at my self naked in the mirror due to the fact of these issues and I have low self esteem. I would love to have a extreme makeover it would make my life a whole lot better. I suffer from depression and I think having a makeover would boost my self esteem and help with some of my depression. I am a hard worker I give a lot to people. I work with the elderly in their homes so they can keep their independence and do not have to go to nursing homes. on top of that I am raising my two children. I would love to do this for myself, to make me feel good about myself. please please help me.
thank you so much,

Sweetlady_2013Ashamed and Embarrassed, feel ugly

I want to be able to smile with fixed teeth and lose weight. I have been through so much this year. I have a Christmas wish list. This is on top of my list. Need Extreme head to toe makeover. I am always made fun of and told I’m fat. It hurts my teeth and made fun of also for teeth missing and messed up. Please bless me with this Christmas wish. I am a beautiful woman inside, not outside. 13 months ago

Smiley_LoniI want to feel beautiful

Hi my name is Kayla, I am the mother of a beautiful one year old princess. I’ve been feeling down lately, because I’ve let myself go. I feel unwanted and ugly at times and get depressed about the smallest things. I feel like a makeover would make me feel better about my self. I know its called self-esteem but the way I feel when people look at me and called me pretty makes me sad, because I don’t see the person they see. A makeover would make me feel so happy at this point. I want to get up and feel pretty enough to just take my daughter outside. 17 months ago

samcorrea07About me...

My name is Samantha Correa, I am about to be 23 years old. I am a mom to a beautiful girl named Kierra. Ever since I had her she is my everything. I don’t do stuff for myself anymore, I do it all for her. I have been letting myself go and feeling unsatisfied with my looks, very depressed. I feel like a makeover will give me the confidence I need so when people say I look pretty, maybe I can believe them for once. I feel like it will be not only important for me and my self esteem but for my family and especially my little girl. I believe if she sees mommy happier with herself, she will be much happier. If you give me this opportunity it will definitely make a have a huge impact on my life now as well as my future :) 18 months ago
