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.

halpert7by my birthday!

I have about 4 months to lose 30 pounds…about 2 pounds a week. 8 months ago

halpert7Starting now!

I’ve gotten to that point where it’s hit me how much I need to lose weight. I don’t feel comfortable in my skin and things need to change now. 10 months ago

JinjaI Should Remove this Goal

I am just shy of 170 now and I just don’t see it happening. I’ll have to renew my effort but I am just too tired right now. On the plus side, though, I have been slightly better about feeling out of control about it. 23 months ago

halpert77 pounds to lose!

I was doing great with my weight when I lived abroad, but now that I’m back home and in school, I have stopped working out and have been eating out way too much. It’s time to get back to being healthy! And I want to feel good in my w-dress! 2 years ago

JinjaSeems Unlikely

I went for five straight days without having any treats or sweets. Then I visited my sister and there was chocolate pie. Shabbat Shalom!

I’m under 170 at least, but it is beginning to look like this is an unrealistic goal. 2 years ago

Kat Bass1st weekly update

So this week.. has not moved me anywhere. Last time I checked, I wieghed 145, and I have been pigging OUT during the Holidays.. ( pizza, beer, chocolate..etc.) so Im scared to go check because I probably gained a pound or 2. I get in this mentality of.. Complacency when I feel that Ive failed. Some people find it motivating to see that their numbers arent right and do everything they can to take those extra pounds off. Or maybe I just made these
people up in my head, and everyone feels like I do after a week of binging.. like they want to binge more and give up. This shouldnt be my life! Something has to change upstairs in order for this to happen for me. Theres a couple times during the day that I really become a slave to food: 1.In the morning 2.Right before work 3.Right after work 4.Before bed. If I could get a handle on these times, even if its only one moment at a time, I belive my habits would be corrected over time. I forget that patience is a virtue. Lasting improvements are made mostly over time.. So tomorrow, Ill start by having a reasonable breakfast (Bowl of Oatmeal, piece of fruit, juice/water/coffee) and actually waiting a couple hours to have lunch. Wish me luck!! 2 years ago
