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.

ButterflyOn average

Patients who go to see a chiropractor have between 5 and 10 “sublaxations” or things that aren’t quite working as they should. A little over a year ago, when I first started seeing mine, I had 43. Definitely above average. But. As of today, I am at

4 months ago

ButterflyWent and had

x-rays this morning. I need to wait to go over them with my chiro, but from what I can see, I’ve improved! 5 months ago

ButterflyHad a really good

adjustment today! Usually there’s one that hurts, but this time it didn’t and moved well. Yay! Must keep up with yoga in the morning, I think it helped. 6 months ago

ButterflyFeeling proud

because I had a re-exam today & my results were excellent! I am now down to 13 things that are out of alignment. The beginning of this year, I was at 43, then 23, 18 and last time, 15.

In one of the tests where I have to stand on 2 scales, I’m usually leaning heavily to one side, this time there was only 1 kilo difference, which is considered “normal.” Another test where I have to shut my eyes and march on the spot, I usually end up halfway across the room, today I rotated 20 degrees to the left & didn’t move forward.

My chiro told me that I’m going so well because I’m putting in the work & doing the exercises and changing my diet, while other people don’t, so their progress is slower. In the new year, he wants me to get some more X-rays done and then in late February, I might only have to go in every couple of weeks, instead of once a week! 8 months ago


There’s a test I have to do when taking a re-exam which involves marching on the spot with my eyes closed and arms outstretched in front of me. Last time I moved 8 feet forward and turned to the right. This time I stayed facing forwards and only moved 1 foot ahead!! My number is now

ButterflyForgot to update-

from my last re-exam, that number is now down to 18! :D 12 months ago

ButterflyI had a re-examine today

and guess what, guess what, guess what?!!! I now have 23 things that aren’t working properly instead of the 43 I had before! And I don’t have to do one of the exercises that shifts my spine into alignment any more because it’s already there. And I only have to go once a week now. So happy! 17 months ago

ButterflyA few appointments later

and this is the first that I’ve had a negative reaction. Usually, I’ve walked out feeling good, on a kind of “high.” Tonight I walked out with C., feeling nauseous. Wasn’t very nice at all, although it only lasted an hour. Now I just feel really tired. Going to talk to the chiro next visit and see what he says. 17 months ago

ButterflyYesterday, I went

to my auntie’s chiropractor. Finally! He was very professional, explained things well and made me feel comfortable. And he picked things up that have been picked up in the past without seeing any x-rays. All 43 of them :S (Which is kind of ironic in a way). Today I have to go and get x-rays, then drop them off. 18 months ago

aliisefirst days with my back backwards

❤ learning to breath like a pro (complicated, almost mystical activity, especially since the carcass of my bones seems
to be stopping my lungs from grasping enough air).
❤ finally seeing a physiotherapist, who wears glasses
and measures the length of most of my organs to understand the angles of my spine better.
last time he taught me three exercises, all of which made my brain warp into a puzzled bundle.

so far, getting interested in my back feels like reading a book about nuclear physics. a complete “whoopsadaisies” experience. i hope to understand all i need to understand before monday. my personal “whoopsadaisies” schedule. and my next appointment. 20 months ago
