Mini-Goals - I weigh LESS than my license says I do!

11-07-2006, 10:24 AM
Today is probably one of the happiest days I've had in years....I weigh one lb less than the weight on my license! To make things even worse, when I got my license, I weighed 224 -- but I knew I "carried it well" and hey -- I was wearing black and black is slimming, right? :joker: So I did some typical dieting math in my head and came up with 168 as my weight (which was 100 lbs less than I weighed on New Year's Day, 2001) and for the last 3 years, I've thought about it everytime I pulled that card out. Now today, I'm going to write checks everywhere I go just so I can pull that ID out! (And it's my birthday too, so maybe someone will sing to me *tee hee*)

My DH is the most supportive, loving man alive....but he doesn't get the whole weight-on-the-license thing. I KNEW you all would!!!!!!

congrats I never even thought of my license. I just got it renewed in July so it won't be any big change. How lucky u are not to have to put your weight on your license

Congrats and Happy Birthday! :woo: Today is my b'day too.

That license thing feels great, doesn't it? I just realized that I too am below that weight. It makes it great because the weight on my license was not actually my weight. I was about 10 pounds less than I weighed when I got the license. Woo!!

Hurray for every day victories!!

My license weight has always been 250, even when I weighed 364 lbs. I just realized that I almost weigh what my license says. That will be awesome :)

Mine still says 160, which is what I weighed when I got my liscense at 16. I've just never bothered changing it. LOL Can't wait until I weigh less than mine!!!

Congrats and Happy Birthday!!!:hb: :woo: My license says about 25 lbs. less than what I weigh now (and I put that # down at my heaviest:devil: ), so I know it is a major accomplishment to see that you are actually [I]skinnier[I] than your license.Celebrate!!!

wtg. My DH is a state trooper and says he can't believe how often people lie about their weight on their license. I just laugh. Mine said 155 when I weighed 234. It does feel good to finally get below that license weight. I have noticed that thin men, lie in the other direction. My son weighs 145 and is almost 6'0 and put 155 on his license. (Also, did you notice almost every man says that they are 6'0 and many are more like 5'6'.

(Also, did you notice almost every man says that they are 6'0 and many are more like 5'6'.

My DH swears he is 5'9"--well, I know I am at LEAST 5'8" and I am taller that he is. Maybe if he'd stand up straight LOL! I actually love putting on "high" heels (I rarely buy anything over 2 1/2 inches high) and then stand in front of him and call him "shorty". :p

I remember the day I hit this NSV well! Its such a milestone - I don't know why, but psychologically its really important for some reason...I started out at about 60 lbs higher than the license, and now I'm 12 below.

And happy birthday!

11-07-2006, 05:36 PM
What a great idea for my first mini-goal. I will aim to reach the weight that is on my driver's license! Way to go!

11-07-2006, 06:56 PM
Yay!! That definitely is something to be happy about!! What a great birthday present. :hb: :cb:

11-07-2006, 07:39 PM
Thank you everyone!!!

And that height thing on the DL...I can SO relate to the height thing with my DH. He's been trying to pass for 5'9" as long as I've been trying to pass for 168 *tee hee*

11-07-2006, 07:43 PM
LOL That's great congrats. I put 199 as my weight on my license I actually weighed 240 at the time. I can't wait to weight less than my license.

Don't you hate when they ask you at the DMV if height and weight are the same if you have gained weight.

Ofcourse the answer is always yes -sheepishly everything is the same-

Don't you love it when you have lost weight and -proudly the answer is no, I weight this many lbs. now-.

Congratulations....It felt great to go below that weight listed on my drivers license..mine is listed at 170lbs. for about 10 years now,,,

11-10-2006, 03:34 AM
That is so cool! I never really thought about it before. So I pulled my license out and it says 30 lbs less than I was when I got it. It's says 200. It's kind of cool to think that I'm getting closer to that being the truth! Thanks for sharing your awesome news!!

11-11-2006, 11:08 AM
Thank goodness I live in a state where my weight is NOT on my license!! That'd be awful - and I'd probably have lied anyway :p


11-11-2006, 04:01 PM
This is so great! I can't wait for my day to finally be there! I have a year and a half until I have to renew my license, and I WILL be able to put my goal weight on their by then, YEAH!!!:p :D

11-12-2006, 11:22 PM
Wow, that's awesome. I match my driver's license, which was the weight I made up in last October (40 pounds ago). Ohhh, to be less! Wow!
