Today I posted two blog articles. The first article was posted as planned, HOWEVER it contained a mysterious technical glitch that would not allow me to post a daily Thinspiration Moment video. This second blog posted without difficulty. ********* I'm Going 0n Record here to say: ******** Although Consistency here at DietHobby is one of my long-term goals, AT VARIOUS TIMES, there will be days when more than one article is posted, and there will be days when no articles are posted. This is a freedom that I have granted to myself.
