Would you rather be thin and miserable or happy and overweight?

This is a question posed to me shortly after meeting my husband and I started to gain weight. Which would you choose?

Thats an interesting question. I have never been thin and I will never be "thin" (not like size 2 thin anyway)because my body type won't allow it and I have never been really happy. But yes I think its very possible to be thin and unhappy and overweight and happy. Happiness has nothing to do with external influences like most people think. Happiness is within you, and I am still a long way off from finding happiness.

I find that even though I am on the cuddly side that I am okish as I am.. So I would like to be overweight and happy.. It is whjat is on the inside that counts really....

I have never been overweight. I'm usually underweight. But the way I see it is if you are happy then don't worry about unless it is posing a health concern then you should really look into getting healthy. I am happy with my weight to say the least.

Can't I choose to be thin and happy? :( Well, if this was a serious question (and thin and happy isn't an answer.....), I'd go for happy and overweight. :) Good thing you didn't mention how overweight
