For $100,000, would you put on 40 pounds and keep it on for 3 years? How much money, if any, would induce you to put on 100 pounds for at least a year?
I don’t think so. I mean, I’m already overweight as it is. $100,000 over three years really isn’t much. I mean, sure, it’s more than I will make in the next three years, but if I’m adding 40 pounds to what’s already there? I’m not gonna be feeling like doing too much, so I need to make sure it’s plenty to live on.
And also take care of the inevitable hospital and prescription bills I’ll have thanks to the extra weight.
And I won’t even entertain the idea of putting on 100 pounds. Now… if you wanna pay to lose weight, I’m all ears.
But what about you? Would you be willing to make some questionable health decisions for money? Let me know down in the comments!
