And no you can't just pay for gastric band surgery/lipo if you choose the latter (my thread my rools)

I would be thin and poor

Fat and rich. Then go on a diet.

One is much easier to change than the other ;)

What Anatidae said.

I am thin and poor.

wouldn't mind trying out fat and rich.

how fat are we talking?

I think I would rather be fat and rich actually. Because I'd have a massive house for my family, and horse riding lessons for the dds and private schooling and whatnot. So they would benefit. Whereas if I was thin and poor then we'd all be poor and I would be the only one who "benefitted" from the thinness. If that makes sense.

Fat and rich

I'd be fatter with all the food I could buy grin

Fat and rich.

OP have you ever been poor?? I suspect not or you'd choose fat and rich in a heartbeat.

Thin matters not when you're miserable.

JoanofNark17 Fri 17-Feb-17 10:29:28

I'm a bit fat and a lot poor. I wouldn't mind swapping those around!

They say money can't buy happiness, I say you're just not trying hard enough.

Fat and rich.

Bluntness100 Fri 17-Feb-17 10:29:32

Fat and rich all day long.

Fat and rich.

How fat?

Probably fat and rich because it is notionally easier to get thin than get rich. But actually most people who go on a diet and loose a lot of weight put it on again. And if I was thin and poor, I could maybe marry someone rich because I'd be skinny and hot! But that depends on how poor.

Unless I have to be craned out of the living room window, that might tip the balance.

MrsderPunkt Fri 17-Feb-17 10:32:31

I am fat and rich, and happy with it too. Would definitely choose over thin and poor.

catinbooots Fri 17-Feb-17 10:35:08

Hotty - you are very selfless. A much better person than me.

Whiffle - I'm talking super fat. Like morbidly obese.

catinbooots Fri 17-Feb-17 10:35:56

User - yes I am currently both fat and poor

stopdrawingonyourhands Fri 17-Feb-17 10:38:03

Fat and rich.
I would rather be huge but have security financially for my kids.

Bluntness100 Fri 17-Feb-17 10:38:11

Hmm, super fat I'd have an issue with but being poor is uber shit. Either way you're going to be miserable.

Chippednailvarnishing Fri 17-Feb-17 10:39:29

Depends on why I would be fat.

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Fri 17-Feb-17 10:40:09

Thin and poor.

catinbooots Fri 17-Feb-17 10:40:12

Greed chipped

Chippednailvarnishing Fri 17-Feb-17 10:41:22

Then I'd be rich and diet.

madein1995 Fri 17-Feb-17 10:41:25

Fat and rich. Im fat now, so it wouldnt take much getting used to and in any case you can always lose weight
