I would spend $10,000 so fast, it's not even funny.....but staying at my perfect, favorite weight forever would be worth forgoing the cash. I'm female, what can I say?

Raja-Man said...

sooooo...you chose 10 pounds?

MennoGirl said...

yes sir!

I think I would take the cash, because with a lot of work you can loose 10 pounds, unless you have a great job it's going to be hard to find $10,000. But on the other hand, being 10 lbs lighter for the rest of my life.....?

Money is what matters. I'd rather be a fat slug who can't get out of bed with 10,000 dollars then a thin guy with no money.

I could probably spend all that money really quickly so I am going to say Ten pounds.

Raja-Man said...

YES, SOMEONE AGREES WITH ME!!!....i would chose ten pounds,besides(i'm using my religion card here)God should provide alll i need(monetary wise)....

If you had ten thousand, you could buy the things you'd need to lose ten pounds...

You could get yourself a gym pass and have a ton of money left over... plus, I don't have a problem with weight, so I'd probably look kinda weird with ten pounds off.

If I lost any weight I would feel anorexic. I don't really gain much, either, so I think I'd take the 10k.
