100 lb. Club - Driver's License weight




View Full Version : Driver's License weight

I'm 20 lbs. from my first goal of 52 lbs. in 52 weeks. (God willing, if things continue to go well, I should meet my goal about eight weeks early!) I've sort of been thinking about other goals I can set after I meet that one. Of course, Onderland will be my second goal. I think my third goal will be to not be a driver's license liar. My driver's license says I weigh 180. (Funny story: When I went to replace my license back in October after my wallet was stolen out of my classroom, the guy behind the counter was asking the "anything changed?" questions and got to the weight..."Weight still 180?" he said. I paused and answered in my best Jon Lovitz The Liar voice, "Yeahhhhh, I weigh 180. We'll just say that." He thought it was pretty funny.

So what's your driver's license weight? Or are you one of the lucky ones who live in a state that doesn't ask for your weight?

Florida apparently knows everyone lies, so they don't have weight on the driver's license!

My driver's license says I weigh 155. Last year when I was getting it renewed, the young guy behind the counter says, "Still 155?" I looked him in the eye and said, "Close enough" in my best "don't mess with Mom" voice. He didn't say another word, even though we both knew I am/was nowhere NEAR 155!

My drivers license says I am about 45 pounds heavier than I actually am. And at the tiime that was a lie and I was probably about 40 or so pounds heavier than I said on the license. Anybody follow that ? My weight wasn't changed on my new license , so it is wrong no matter what. I am not as heavy as it says and in the past I wasn't as light as it said.

LOL....when I got my license renewed, I lied and said I just had a baby. (in actuality, it was like a yr later)

I told him, I just want to keep it at that weight because I'll bounce back in no time....ha ha ha....years later....not even close.

LOL....when I got my license renewed, I lied and said I just had a baby.

Ha ha! The old "baby weight" ploy. I remember about 20 years ago being at a WW meeting and a new member was introducing herself. The conversation went something like this:

member: "I'm trying to get rid of this baby weight."
leader: "Oh, and how old is your baby?"
member: "She'll be eight next week."


:lol:

mine reads 180. I wasn't even 180 when I got my drivers lic. :p

i believe it will be one major accomplishment when I reach 180.

Mine says 175. Hahahahahahahaha!!!

Oh, How embarassing. I hope I weigh close to that at least when I get a new license for turning 21 in October. I hope to be around 190?

i havent read a thread this funny in awhile. i had to get my DL out and look at it, couldnt even remember. says 160...right. im convinced maryland has the worst mva ever. they just snapped a new picture and shoved me outta there. when i got my DL renewed for my 21st birthday i was tipping the scale at 200, old lady behind the counter didnt even bat an eye, i could have recently gone blind and she wouldve given me a new one. dont know why 160 has always been a special number to me, even my goal weight on here is 160. so im joining the ranks in no longer being a drivers license liar!!!

When I lived in TX, we had no weight on the license (yea for Texas!)

I was shocked when I moved to CA and found out they put your weight on your license. I lied and said 150 (I was probably 170). Now that I'm 125, I wish it said that. HOWEVER, no one can see my weight because I put my donor sticker (organ donor) right over the weight!!

My drivers license says I weigh 150 pounds. :lol: Which is hysterical!!!!!

When I had to get my license renewed; I was not only way above 150 pounds...about 125 pounds above, but I was 9 months pregnant! No one bothered to ask me what my weight was or if anything changed. I even had to get my picture taken!!!! I wasn't even near 150 pounds when I was 9 months pregnant with my FIRST son, let alone the fourth!

Mine has always said 200, from the time I was 16. (I was probably 210 or so at the time, so it wasn't too far from the truth.) Can't wait to get my weight below that.

I Lived in Ct for 34 years.. and no weight on my license..
When I moved south, i realized they put it on there. I was like WHAT!!!!!!!
So I did put like hmm at that time about 20 lbs less than i was..
and my weight went up and down.. but im almost to my license weight now..
Soon to be way under that!!
LOL, its funny.. but really why do they need your weight, as everyone else said. 99% of the people fudge their weight, or gain or lose..
so makes no sense.. Our licenses are good for like 10 years!
lol

Tennessee doesn't post weight on the drivers license! It was asked on the original drivers permit application, so if it is kept on file it says I weigh what I did when I was 15, which was like 155. Hopefully early next year (or sooner) I will be at that weight.

I live in Florida and they don't ask for your weight on the driver's license...
however, my military ID asks for my weight and it says 160... bahahaa big lie :^:

In the UK they don't ask.

My passport photo weight is about 150.
My driving licence photo weight is 200+.

At my highest weight, I take both with me when I travel overseas, in case someone recognizes I look nothing like my passport photo.
When I got down to 135, I used to take my passport with me when driving in the UK, because I looked nothing like my licence photo.

Frankly, at this mid-point I look like neither, so here's hoping they let me into Spain next month!

My drivers license had said 120 lbs since 1981. I have never changed it, nor been asked to. I am not sure what the point of putting our weight on it really is.

Ija

Up until a few weeks ago mine read 210. It had always read 210 pounds, even when I was close to 300. After my birthday last month I went to to the DMV to get it renewed, not realizing that I was then so much under my listed weight. The clerk did a double take when she pulled up my information... it was kind of nice :)

My old California license said 160. I think I set that weight back in high school when I originally got my license. 160 is still my "driver's license weight" goal even though Texas doesn't put weight on DLs. I immediately thought of it when I set my mini goals.

Once I hit my current mini-goal of -17 lbs, 160 (-31 lbs) will be my next mini goal. (and it's also the lowest I got on WW back in 2001. Once I pass it, I'll really be ecstatic.)

mine says 190- which I actually used to be, and will be again in 7 pounds. Yay!

DCHound
05-24-2009, 10:09 PM
Well for years I put 150 on there, even though I was never anywhere near that. Last time I renewed I went on and upped it to 200, because at 350+ there was no way 150 was going to fly...and soon I hope to be UNDER my license weight!

(If I get back down anywhere under 200 that sucker's going BACK to 150!!) :)

I think my driver's license weight is 140. I think at the time it was correct but when I have gone to get it renew... I still say it's the same. I think when I did go last to get it renewed, I was at my highest weight: 195. Well, it expires this October so hopefully I can get there OR be even LOWER :)

LOL! I did the same thing, except mine says I weigh 160. (Yeah right, more like 160 and a big dog!) I think that's going to be one of my first majpr milestones....to actually weigh what my driver's license says I do :)

Mine says 240, but I like the picture and even though you can see my eyes better now and I am sure I could still take a nice pic for my new license I do not want to give up my Cali one. I will tell you I won't lie if they ask for it :)

05-26-2009, 12:33 PM
My DL has said 140 since I was 16, I have NEVER even been 140 except maybe at birth. Now I am 143, but that is a daily battle and I bounce between 143 and 150 constantly. The last time I got mine renewed I weight 165 and my hair went from brown to blonde. The dude behind the counter said, I see your hair has changed colors, and I said and that is ALL that has changed. lie lie lie.

Oh yeah, mine is too light for my current weight and I think it was too light a the time, too. I take comfort in the fact that by the time all this weight is gone the license will be far too HEAVY!

Kansas doesn't put your weight on the DL anymore, makes me happy!

Mine says 135 lbs - that was what I weighed when I got my drivers license at 16. Every year they ask me "is everything the same" and every year I say yes.

When did they change that - I just got mine renewed in August 08 and it is still on there? I want a new license, lol.

I'm so glad Tennessee doesn't have weight on the DL. When I lived in Louisiana about 6 years ago, I got into a small accident (completely at fault) and the cop that showed up was a total B-I-T-C-H. She wasn't small either, but she called me a liar, said there was no way I weighed what my DL said and that I had to weigh at least 35 more than my DL said and needed to get a new one so it would be right. It was only maybe 15 pounds off!

I'm sorry the policeman said such hurtful things.

OMG, I had to go check, but I'm two pounds away from my driver's licence weight! I'm excited because I think I was a good 40 lbs heavier when I went in... they didn't bat an eye tho... BIG FAT LIAR over here!!!

05-27-2009, 04:00 AM
Ha, this question always cracks me up! :dizzy: My license weight says 250 lbs, which is almost a 100-lb inaccuracy now--but the really funny thing is that, at the time I got my license, it was actually about 20 lbs off, only in the *other* direction!! :lol: I remember thinking Ehhh, I'm just gonna round DOWN for this question... :tape: But now it's so far off! It's been a few months since I've been anywhere that required my ID to be checked with much closeness, but I suppose I probably don't look much like that picture anymore... Hope I don't get rejected anywhere because of it! :p

Kae
05-27-2009, 11:49 AM
I couldn't remember so I had to pull it out... it says 200... which I guess is more feasible now that I am 232 than when I was 268. LOL. I'm looking forward to getting below my DL weight... then I'll pretend I lost the darn thing so I can change the weight on there and get a new picture taken. LOL.

05-27-2009, 06:48 PM
I'm not going to fess up to what my DL says ... let's just say I lied and leave it at that. But after reading all these pots I'm thinking we should all be happy there's no penalty for weight dishonesty. Of course I would be there in the naughty line as well!!!! ROCK ON!

time2lose
05-27-2009, 06:49 PM
Mine says 215, not too far off from the truth right now. Of course, this was the weight on my dl when I weighed 280. :)

I will change mine and get a new picture when I get close to goal!

I don't have a DL because I'm just now studying to get my permit (at 19, that's a bit sad and pathetic). However, my Washington State ID originally said 200lbs when I realistically weighed 220. I got a new one at the beginning of the year and changed the weight to 190, though the scale told me more along the lines of 205. It still says 190, and now I'm almost below 170 lbs!!!

My old one says 135 and that's from high school, when I was 15. I had to get it renewed, and i couldn't put 135 again, so I put 200. Not that far off, but I'm going to try my darndest to get down to something like 150 for Christmas. i have to get a new one in a year or so (i'm moving) so hopefully i'll be able to put a lower weight on my next one!

I just weighed 200.0 This morning~And was actually Aggravated because I was thinking why in the heck couldn't I have got 199.9 Or something LOL
But I just checked my drivers License (and I always lie on my weight HAHA) it says 200! LOL SO WEIRD! I am exactly as It says for today ONLY I HOPE!

I just got my license on December 1st of last year, and I was 21. I never learned in high school because I went to a residential high school where we couldn't drive. Then it just became this fear for me. My husband taught me at the end of last year, and I'm so happy..lol

Anywho-My dl says I weigh 239, which I did at the time. But now I'm 255. I'd like to get down to that weight and keep on flying past it!

I just renewed mine in April. It had said 200 lbs. At 269lbs, that was not believable. So I told the guy 230.:nose: I’m almost halfway there. I’ve lost 23 lbs since then. That experience is what motivated me to start losing weight. As soon as I reach my goal, I’m getting a new license with a new picture and a new weight. Maybe even my true weight.;)

Wow!! Me too!!! :D :carrot: By like 10lbs!! I have 220 on mine and I weighed in this morning at 209.8 (ohohohohohmigod YAAAAAAAAAAY!!) hehe That's like seriously exciting!!

Yeaaaah.... so I lied and said I was 30lbs lighter years ago. So what... :p ;) hehe

08-16-2009, 02:38 AM
My license (and ID card before I had a permit/license) has said 290 since I was 20. I was probably at around 300 then. I'm ashamed that I'm ashamed enough to lie, if that makes sense. But once you cross into the magical 300 territory (and are out about it) people look at you different and I was trying to hide from that.

So I guess this is the closest I have been to my DL weight... ever!

I have to renew mine before my BDAY next week. I am nowhere NEAR what I weighed at that time. I know I'm gonna lie to be as close to it as possible. Maybe I'll even say the same number, even if they give me that "Yeah right" look. :lol:

Do you have to put on a new photo every time you re-apply?

I wish we did. I've just had to send mine off to get my address details changed but there was no option to update photo. Pity. The moonface on my licence looks nothing like me now. I hope. This is an encouragment, on another weekend when the ground feels slippery under my feet, to keep on going and get even more unrecognizable!

Here in NM we do, it kind of bums me out because so far I've lived here for two years and had five pictures - ID when I moved here (space alien photo), first permit picture (fabulous), second permit picture (okay), third permit picture because I got married and changed my name (awful), and my you-got-your-license photo (decent, but not as good as first permit picture).

But I definitely see why they do it - I am just vain!

SunshineCA

We don't have to add a new photo every year but this year I do. I'm going to sweet talk my way into keeping the one I already have. ;)

very cool, sk!! congrats

when I moved from Calif to NYC, I kept my Calif license for many years. (You have to list your weight on Calif license, and you can renew by mail several times, no new pics). I finally caved and got a NY about 3 years ago -- I have to dig out that old Calif license, I know lied about my weight on it (probably by 20 or 30 lbs). Which makes me wonder why they even require it, how many women tell the truth on it anyway. Plus, it doesn't get updated to reflect gains/losses.

NYS doesn't require weight on their licenses.
