That wouldn't pay for the food. I am SO SO SO desperate for money now, but that is simply not enough to give you resources to live on while you gain, then lose. Obviously, I couldn't go anywhere, because I would have NO clothes. I would do a lot of crazy things for money now - out of sheer frantic need. I AM a risk taker. But there's no profit here. You would not break even, and that's certainly no advantage.
I'm not at maintenance weight, but I'll echo what the others have said. $10K is not enough money to so something so difficult. I *Might* gain weight for a million or so because then I could afford a "fat camp" to go to so I could get it off.

$10,000 isn't that much money. I could easily earn that by picking up a second job on the weekend for a few months. No way. Not for ten thousand, not for a hundred thousand, and probably not for a million either (as I suspect that gaining that much weight would seriously impact my ability to perform my job and advance in my career, and my future earning potential is way more than just a million bucks).

Certainly not, considering the psychological effects that come with it. I know how different a mindset I have now and I won't go back.
Absolutely not! Imagine how much extra $$$ you would have to spend on food to even get there.

No way !
It's so easy to gain weight and be out of shape, it's much more difficult to drop the weight and get back on track. It's a lot simpler to remain eating a healthy diet and sticking to a routine of exercise.

no way!! I feel great at a 23 pound weight loss I could not imagine putting my life at risk to gain weight to try and loose it again. I bust my but everyday to see these pounds shred one day at a time and could not imagine trying to gain it for money!

No. The health risks of gaining 100 pounds are much greater than $10k.

$10,000 doesn't buy as much as it used to. I'm not desperate enough to significantly risk my health for that amount of money. For 10K, I'd be willing to gain 5 pounds, maybe 10.

Money isn't worth risking my health again....it has been very challenging to get this far.

The only way I would even think about gaining that much weight is I would have to starve myself to get to a super light weight for the starting weight and even then it would have to be for more money for me to even consider it. Just being 50lbs heavier than I am now had me feeling so bad about myself...not only the way I looked but the way I felt also... It is not worth it to be overweight.
nope. I've worked too hard to get down to where I am now to screw things all up putting weight back on!

actors do weight gains/losses all the time for various roles. Toni Collette swore she'd never do it again after Muriel's Wedding, but she let Curtis Hanson talk her into gaining a few lbs for In Her Shoes. I think she dropped the weight while filming (her character lost weight in the movie).
Renee Zellweger gained weight to play Bridget Jones. Tom Hanks gained and lost a lot of weight for Castaway.
all of them can afford the personal trainers and a chef to help them get back in shape. They are also normally thin folks. And they didn't gain 100 lbs. I think it would be much more difficult to convice a heavier person who'd finally managed to get the weight off to gain it back!
