04-26-14 – Saturday – Vape Day #7

Another day goes by and the desire to smoke cigarettes is completely gone. Yesterday I stopped by a local vape shop near my job and picked up a stronger battery and 10 ml. of menthol in 18 nicotine strength for Sharon. I ordered her a kit and it should arrive today. I am praying that she takes to vaping the same way I did. That would be awesome. I created an excel spreadsheet at work to monitor the cost differences between smoking and vaping. Currently the cost of a pack of Newports in Oregon at the 711 is 5.83. I was smoking two packs a day. I will release these figures at the beginning of each month in my monthly statement which will reflect the last months savings and debt reduction. So far it is looking pretty positive.

Sugar levels are down since yesterday yet still a little higher than I like it to be. Weight came in .4 lbs. lighter than yesterday showing leveled progress. I am still looking at belly fat, fat above my hips and fat at the chest area. Slowly this will burn away. Time, patience, dedication and hard work. Keep on keeping on.
