If you are anything like us, you wrestle with important life questions daily.
Like this one.
Picture the scenario if you will: You are granted the ability with no effort or work on your part to instantly be at your ideal weight. Whatever that number is, twitch your nose and blink your eyes Bewitched style and you are it. No more Spanx. Or deciding whether or not it is socially acceptable to go to Parent’s Night at school in yoga pants, as they are the only thing that fits.Or…Would this scenario be more enticing for you? What if you could have, with no questions asked and no taxes applied, one million dollars. Immediately. Got some credit card debt? Not anymore. Have been wanting to take a vacation but can’t figure out where your money tree is? Book that luxury cruise, because you are traveling in style this year baby!
Surprisingly, The Dose Girls were split on this question. I know, right? It seemed to so obvious to both of us.
Ashley: Do you even feel like this is a good question? I mean, obviously everyone is going to choose the same answer. Will they even have to think about it at all?
Lisa: Good point. It could still be fun to ask, though. I mean, unless someone is already at their ideal weight, then I guess they’d have to pick the money.
Ashley: Wait…WHAT? You think everyone is choosing the weight one? NO WAY. Who is not picking the million dollars?
Lisa: I wouldn’t. One MEELION dollars isn’t what it used to be, Dr. Evil. But think about it..instantly at your ideal weight. No dieting. No exercising. No effort. Just you and your perfect, healthy weight. I’d choose that. I’m not getting any younger. My metabolism is crawling to a halt over here!
Ashley: Well, when you put it like that. I could probably even wear a shirt tucked in again. I don’t think I have done that since the 9th grade. It would be really nice to only have my biggest closet challenge be that I have no fashionable clothes, not that I have no clothes that actually fit. Of course, I could just cry on my million dollar money pile instead.
Lisa: Money pile crying does sound awfully comforting now that you mention it.
We agreed right then and there that this question must be presented, because if we were split on it, then probably everyone else would be split, too.
So, tell us in the comments…would you rather instantly be at your ideal weight or have one million dollars? And did you have to think about it? Was it a hard choice in your mind or a total no brainer for you?
