Wow! I'm now only 5 pounds heavier from my drivers license stated weight. And when I got my driver's license I was only lying by 10 pounds at the time. When I started FatSecret, I was 22 pounds heavier than my drivers license weight.

Driver's license weight: 185
Current weight: 190
FS starting weight: 207

Does anyone else wanna fess up? And what do I do when I'm lower than my DL weight? I just got it renewed in April and it's good for 4 years. Oh, when I lose my weight and get to goal, I'm also "losing" my driver's license and getting a new one...(and I'll probably lie about my weight again.)
============================================
155: After regaining 16 pounds. It's my goal again.
155: Goal Weight | March 17, 2012!!!! I did it!
Size 8: levi's jeans | February 3, 2012 (Actually, I'm a size 6. I skipped Cool
168: BMI 24.8 no longer overweight | December 1, 2011
174: Vegas vacation | September 15, 2011 (two weeks early)
180: first 27 pounds gone | August 25, 2011
186: 10% body weight lost | July 14, 2011
199: 200's gone forever | May 12, 2011
207: Starting Weight | April 28, 2011

LOL...I had lied on my driver's license by 10 pounds as well. I am now very close to my DL weight of 150. I still have two years on my current DL. Not sure if I'll request a new one, because I actually like my picture. Smile

It's funny that this conversation came up. I was just thinking the other day that my proudest moment will be when I get to go to the DMV and spend the $10 to get a driver's license that shows a weight below what's written there now, which is a big fat lie, literally and figuratively.

In Texas our DL's dont show our weight, but when i was 18 i got a speeding ticket, and there was a spot for the officer to put my height and weight (on the slip he gave me).
He was able to get my height off my DL but apparently guessed my weight. At the time I was about 120-125lbs. The officer 'guessed' 140. I was so mortified!!!

I am a Texan, and luckily our drivers license don't show our weights, but when the officer pulled me over he wrote 20 lbs less than my actual weight at the time. He totally made my day!!!

I WISH I weighed what my DL states I'm in OH. Can't wait for the day I'll tell them the truth.

I think my weight is about 30+ lbs over what my DL says. We don't have to change our license for 8 yrs so that would be about right.
Todays weigh in was 165

I was so excited about this until I realized that there is no weight on my VA license. I think I'd be 20-30 lbs below it, depending on whether I updated it the last time I renewed it or not.

MY DL weight says 130. HAHA!! I think that is what I weighed when I was 16 and got my license!! I wonder if I could ever get back down to that!?!?!!?

DL weight 130
Current weight 160
Goal weight (right now) 150
This might have remotivated me that lower is possible!! Smile

Just checked my WA license - 125 lbs. I think I was only lying by ~5 pounds back then (4 years ago).
The good thing is, even though I'm still 10 lbs over the license weight, I look and feel much better now than when I got it! Very Happy

current weight: 151
WW goal weight: 145

I just renewed mine in April & was thrilled to be able to put a weight on there 50 lbs lower than what was on it from 5 years ago...& I was probably lying about that weight back then, lol. For the first time ever I actually LIKE my DL picture, & it makes me happy to look at it because I now weigh even less than I did 3 months ago. Very Happy

I actually had to look at my license to see if we had weight on them, and luckly we don't but I did lie about my height lol

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

I still have my drivers license from when I first got my license at 17. It still says my mothers address, and still says I'm 125lbs. I wish!
