My little white box...well until recently I never own one, never thought of a need to have one either. I spent several years as a street officer in law enforcement..and I have been shot at, spit at, cussed at, but no one ever told me I would have to deal with a little white box. Oh..they come in different shapes, colors, and sizes some are mechanical while others are digital, but they all end up doing the same thing.It is interesting the mind games it can play on a individual because it can either "break a person" or "make a person." The box usually has a mental control over us, think about it... Some of us hold our breath, then there are those that close their eyes, while other are scared to even get close to it. Yet we spend our money, the money we worked so hard for, just to let us be controlled by this little box.
The other day I thought it was misleading me, so I tried it again and still didn't like its' comment, it was surely not what I wanted to see. So then I picked it up and shook it, thinking it was broken, placed it back in its resting place but still this little box gave me the same answer "No Change." What!! How could this be? I did everything the same for the last few weeks or at least I thought I did, I shook it again ... a little harder this time probably because I may had been a little frustrated at it..laid it back down but it refused to tell me anything different, "NO CHANGE!" No doubt, some of you may have felt this way about your little box but remember I told you it could "break you" or make you." I chose the latter, "make you", because after thinking it though, I realize there a some weeks that your body is readjusting to a new life style change. It is confused at times because it is not taking the calories in like it use to nor receiving the type of food that got you in the condition before starting a more healthier life style. Now... all of a sudden.. you have changed the way you are eating and it doesn't seem that you are going back to the old ways, so your system panics on what to do with the excess body fat, do I save it or just use it up? Let me say this, I am telling it to use it up because I have made a commitment to be healthier and those numbers on my little white box will not stop me from doing that either!
So believe it or not, my little white box has given me the determination to stay focus on losing weight and I will control it rather it controlling me. Don't let your little box beat you up either, all it is trying to tell you that you need to work harder and stay focus with your goals. Now, I know it does not make you happy when it doesn't give you the answer you want but remember no one, not even a little box, can take away your happiness. Keep the faith and the pace, and you will reach your mission.
