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.

strawberrydayBone density

Stronger bones. Yesyes. When I have bone and muscle density such that I no longer float at all, I will be well pleased. 6 years ago

Freya_18My new love of

yougurt and granola should be helping this goal out. :-) 8 years ago

ShannonDoing better...

Well, I remembered my Fosamax this morning, but I keep forgetting the Calcium pills on the weekend. 8 years ago

ShannonNeed to stay on a routine

I was diagnosed with osteopenia (call it pre-osteoporosis) last year. Now I’m supposed take Fosamax weekly and 1500 mg of calcium daily. I usually get at least 500 mg of calcium daily and I almost always remember to take my Fosamax on Sunday. But I’m horrible at sticking to a routine. I cut back on coffee years ago when it made a heart murmur worse.

When I had my bone density test done, my femur head was -1.8. That’s WAY too close to that damned -2.0 magic number. I’m 43 years old, caucasian, thin, and short. I’m also perimenopausal, so life’s just a great big bundle of joy right now. 8 years ago


Well good news, the new place I’m working at has TERRIBLE tasting coffee. So much so, that I hate drinking it (honestly what’s the point of weak coffee????). So I’ve cut down tons and tons.

Although, DANGER my sister is working at Starbucks for the summer….better watch out on that one. 8 years ago


Today I bought calcium pills, hopefully this will help neutralize all the coffee I’ve been drinking…... 8 years ago

Freya_18Bad Bones!

I had a bone density test last year, and it turns out that I have the bone density of a 65 year old (which is like 40 years older than me!!!) SCARY!!
Apparently the causes are small bone structure and being caucasian (well I can’t help it, I was born that way).
So I’ve been trying to cut down on caffine (v. hard), drink more milk, and work out more.
I don’t want my bones to fall apart in 10 years. 8 years ago

sara_without_an_hNever too young

My doctor is fabulous and does routine bone density scans with their physicals. I was 25 when I had it done and I had a good amount of bone loss in my lumbar spine. I’m pretty sure mine is due to genetics, but it is good to check for bone loss at any age. I’m on prescription medicine for a year and hopefully that will help. 9 years ago

halfwaythruavoid osteoporosis

I have low bone density so I’m learning about calcium supplements, hormones, and other fun stuff. The chewy candy-like calcium supplements I think are nasty. Too sweet. So I’m trying a mixture of chewable (like a vitamin C pill) and ones you swallow at mealtimes. 9 years ago
