Five whole weeks today

Well then, lets see - I'm fat and can't stop eating, spotty, a little bit off my rocker, dateless for valentine's day (missus is away on business), overworked, tired and generally feel like I've been beaten up from the inside out over the last five weeks.

On the plus side, I'm a non-smoker who's craving less and less all the time and despite all of the above, I feel on top of the world ;)

Big love for all the people going through it, keep on trucking!
