This is probably what I would name the third Bridget Jones movie. Can you imagine needing to gain 25lbs? Completely ignoring the health risks, etc. just indulge me for a minute and imagine how totally awesome it would be to get paid quite a lot of money to gain weight. In actuality, Renée Zellweger will not be gaining weight for her role in the third movie. She will wear a fat suit. That must make her sad. Just think – eating all you want! Earning money! Doing both at once!
This is a fantasy of mine.
Well, being able to eat whatever I want and not worry. It’s my default fantasy right after winning the lottery (no offense to my husband, but this isn’t that kind of blog). I spent a lot of time thinking about this tonight. So I thought I’d ask other people how they would gain 25lbs as say, part of their job. Then I thought, why not make it extra interesting? Simply eating more of everything is too easy. I like a challenge after all. What if you could only have 5 different meals? And then I changed it to 5 meals and 1 dessert because I didn’t want any of my very favorite meals to be left out. Okay, so these are the rules of the game:
- You need to gain 25lbs. There will be no adverse health risks, you won’t feel lethargic or “icky” inside, and you will revert back to your current weight with no effort at all (I did say it was a game so realism has no place here).
- You get to pick 5 meals and 1 dessert ONLY. It can be any meal you want, and any dessert you want, but you can only eat these things until you gain the 25lbs.
- One meal cannot combine several foods, (e.g. Pizza, burgers, steak and fries are not 1 meal. Something you would realistically consider a meal in your “normal” life). So, pizza is one meal, a burger is another meal and steak and fries are another meal. The silver lining is you can eat as many meals as you like in a day.
- You can take as long as you need to gain the weight. Therefore, you might be eating these 5 meals and 1 dessert for a month, 3 months, 6 months, however long it takes you. Choose wisely, lest you become bored out of your mind and want to stick a fork right in your eye instead of in that 30th serving of lasagna.
Okay! Here we go. Comment with your meals and dessert and how much you would love to do this on a scale from 1-10, especially given rule #1.
Of course, I will tell you mine. Nay, I will show you.
And for dessert….
And there you have it – pretty simple. I just thought of something else – if this is all I eat for say, 3 months, I would be pretty tired of all of these dishes by the end and would probably never want to eat them again.
As if it would really take me 3 months to gain 25lbs. Pfft.
Let’s make that an addendum – you won’t get tired of these foods either. Because that would be too sad.
I make up rules as I go along. Just ask anyone who’s met me.
