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.

walk again (read all 35 entries…)

I’m noticing some more progress. I believe it’s due to some light biking at the gym. This is less strenuous than walking because your body weight is not on your legs. It’s a good way to build up the leg muscles gently. It also seems to be realigning my knee/thigh. For lower body I also do a very light leg extension for the quad and a leg lift for the hamstring (can’t do curls because the bar would rest on my achilles). Then I work out the upper body while sitting or laying down so as not to stress my leg. So far so good. My leg gets sore when I use free weights (because I have to pick them up while on my feet), so I try to keep that to a minimum.


hi you are not alone

unfortunately in similar boat,your body tends to stiffen up other joints above and below can get affected but, you may get some better mobility if you get rid of stiffen in other joint eg hip
if you havent tried already you have nothing to lose if get into hydrotherapy pool,sauna, spa, swimming, also found the best bikes to use are fan/air bikes where you control the resitance they are smoother
anyway good luck and great inspirational pic says it all


I want to:
