100 lb. Club - Driver's License Weight "Contest"
08-19-2004, 06:34 PM
I was looking at my driver's license and really had to chuckle. Boy, was I in a state of denial. Anyway, I know that most of us don't have our correct weight on our driver's license, and I thought it would be fun to see how far off we were/are.
At my highest weight, I was 261, and my driver's license says 180. So I weighed 81 lbs. more than my driver's license weight. :lol: Can anyone beat that?
I plan to throw a party when I actually hit my driver's license weight. :)

Nope! Mine is "only" 30-40 off. :D (And not for long either, may I add...)
08-19-2004, 07:42 PM
Well mine says 350 and my highest with that weight on it was 421 so 71 lbs. Almost but did not beat you. However on a good note I am only 13lbs away from that 350. I see you have me beat there also. You only have 6 more to go. But hey we are all winners in the game of getting to are drivers license weight.

I probably beat everybody ;) My drivers license says 250 although I probably haven't weighed 250 since i was 12 or so. At my highest weight, i was 364 so at that point it would've been 114 lbs off.

i feel so fortunate that I never had to fill out a weight on my license. My height, however, is incorrect- and if I had to fill out a weight I would have certainly lied through my teeth.

Well, I have an Arkansas drivers license and we don't have to put our weight on them. But, my military ID says 160. Kudo points to my husband because he did that without my knowledge. Guess he did not see me as some fatso. Anyways, I guess that gives me a difference of 85 pounds! That's just to funny.

in NY you dont have to put your weight on your drivers license thank goodness too many people see that thing.
08-19-2004, 08:37 PM
I put my correct weight on my drivers license because I finally figured out that the person on the other side of the counter just might be able to figure out that I am much closer to 250# than the 145# that I would otherwise claim. :o Now, if I can just convince them that I am 7'5" instead of 5'7" I would be height/weight porportionate! :devil:
Actually my big thing is I WILL NOT smile when I have my picture taken. Why? Well, I figure that if I am stopped by an officer I will not be smiling and will look similar to the pix on my license. :(

My drivers license says I am 85kg (185lbs) - at my highest weight I was 100 lbs heavier than this. They never ask when you renew your license whether the weight is accurate - probably cause noone would say "oh yeah, btw I'm actually 130 lbs heavier than that, do you mind changing that for me?" :lol:
08-19-2004, 11:28 PM
For a long time mine had said 160!! Yah right!! When?? But right at this moment, it says 235 and my Highest weight was 320, that's a whopping 85 lbs difference!!
08-19-2004, 11:37 PM
I told the truth when I got mine, and I currently weigh 18 lbs. less than I did on 8-4-2000. Pretty cool. I hadn't looked in forever. Thanks Sheila. :)

mine says 200 pounds, I was kinda shocked when I saw the conversion from kg to pounds, I was probably 265 when the picture was taken. I always look smaller than I actually weigh, like, I weigh 265 and wear a size 18/20, and I'm 5'7" and a half (!!).
08-19-2004, 11:52 PM
Swim, I'm quite similar. I'm 5'6 and when I weighed around 260, I wore a 18/20. Actually right now, I have a few 18/20 tops. My butt is the hard one to get down to that size ;) but I did wear a size 18/20 pant when I was 260. Right now, I am wearing size 24 or size 26 pants, depending on the pants, when I hit 300, I expect to be firmly a size 24 pant.

I was relieved that here in NC we don't have to put our weight on the drivers license. In the other places I have lived, I think the highest I ever admitted to was 180 ~ I was probably 210 at the time. In my twisted thinking, I felt like I didn't look any smaller at 180 than I felt like I looked at 210, so what difference did it make.
I think that how I look ~ what I see in the mirror ~ is part of why this weight loss thing is discouraging to me. At one point I had lost about 45 pounds ~ I was able to wear a smaller size and my old clothes were looser, but when I looked in the mirror ~ I still saw the same old fat me.

Although it is not listed on the license here in Arkansas, they do ask us for their records when we renew. I'm almost certain I said 230 lbs. when I renewed a few years ago. At the time I was at my peak of about 320 lbs. so I'm sure the clerk was snickering to herself even as I said it. Now I probably need to have it redone just because the picture is so different. I've actually had a teller at my bank hold my license hostage and show it to everyone around her (including other customers!) and ask me every detail about how I lost the weight. Of course I happily answered all the questions even if I was blushing wildly the entire time. :o

I thought I had lied a little more but mine is only off by 35 lbs from my highest weight (the license says 340 and my highest was 374). But it makes me realize that now I'm off the other way -- I'm 292 so I'm almost 50 lbs lighter!
08-20-2004, 03:54 PM
Looks like mine so far has the farthest difference. Mine has had 165 on it since I got my permit when I was 15 1/2. Even then I lied and it was about 10 pounds off. At my highest (317) there was a 152 pound difference. Now I've got 97.5 pounds to get rid of before my license has my true weight. You can bet that once I do reach goal my license will find a nice new dumpster somewhere and I'll be getting a new one. (I renew this December and won't renew again for another 4 years and I WILL be below 165 before then!!!)

I thought I would check mine to since this seems so interesting! I'm not sure about my drivers lisence but my military ID said 135!! I WISH!! I forgot how skinny I was when we got married! That is a 65 lb difference. You still beat me.

Well, when I first got my Mississippi license back in '98, I gave them a correct weight. Then, I lost (actually misplaced) it two or so years later and when I got a replacement, had them up the weight 20 lbs, which was accurate at the time. I had to renew last year and just kept the weight where it was, which is decidedly NOT accurate! :lol: Right now, the weights are about 55 lbs. off.
When I worked at K-Mart (for less than a month!) in college, I learned that most overweight people lie on their driver's license. The weight of choice is 125#. :)
Beverly, have you ever had a problem with people not believing that you are the person on your ID? Has anyone ever had that happen to them?
08-22-2004, 12:57 PM
I could never imagine putting something like 125 lbs on my drivers license. The reason I put 250 (and when I got it, it was 50 lbs off), is because 250 means a big girl, just I'm a bit bigger than that ;)
08-22-2004, 10:57 PM
Mine says 249. Exactly what I weighed at the time. I was proud to have lost the weight that I had and I figured putting down my real weight was an incentive to lose more of it. So, I totally lose this contest. :)
08-23-2004, 11:38 AM
Mine says 260. I was about 280 at my highest, so it wasn't that far off. Really, I wasn't weighing then, so I didn't know. Actually, I might have even been about 260 when I got it!
I'm not sure if the weights matter. I mean, men estimating the weight of even a fairly large women (like 350+) are likely to guess 200 pounds, thinking they're right.
Maybe that's what I should put on my next license, 200 pounds...
08-23-2004, 12:16 PM
Actually, my ex boyfriend was always trying to pick me up, I thought he was crazy. One day I asked him how much he thought I weighed, he said around 200 or so. I suppose he was trying to be safe ;) as well as having no clue.
08-23-2004, 10:24 PM
My drivers license says 73Kg (161 lbs).. When the picture was taken, I was around 190lbs.. Oh god, I would love to look like this again :D Here it is:
08-25-2004, 01:00 PM
i still have the weight of my permit on my license. it says 135 which is about 10 pounds more than i actually weighed at the time. my highest weight was 272.8.
08-25-2004, 02:25 PM
MY DL says I weigh 160 (I weigh 230) so... 80 pounds off ;)
