Can anybody here say that the number for their weight on their driver's license is accurate?

I lied on the license I got when I was 16 (I wasn't even overweight).

I caught a glimpse of my driver's license today and realized that I am under the weight posted on that little piece of plastic.

It is time to go to the DMV and get a new much lower number put on there.

Congrats! I'm a liar too I'm originally from NY where weight is not on the license. When I moved to Illinois it was a bit of a shock. Of course I lied...I said 210 (I was much closer to 270 at that point). I just realized that I'm actually below my listed weight too. It's a freakin' fantastic feeling! My license is up for renewal in May and it's my motivation to keep going. I want that darn number to be much closer to my goal & I really think it will be crazy having it be accurate, lol.

Mine says that I weigh 230, but I really weigh 196. I weighed 269 when I got it! One of the first things I'll do when I hit goal is get a new license with my true weight on it for the first time!

My license says 200 I got in Feb09. But I was 220 and 7mnths pregnant so I figured I would be 200 after delivery. I was 237 after delivery.
I am now 193 and will be happy to get a new license with a lower weight. woohoo!

My high school one said 165 when I was actually about 180 at the time. Then it said 200 when I was actually 250. Now it says 250 and I'm over 300. It will be nice to go lower than that, and keep marching on.

Yup, I now weigh about 135, but my license still says 160, which for a long time was well below my real weight

yeah, plus here in Cali the DMV changes it....

When I first got my license at 19 I weighed 118 and that went on my license.

When I renewed it, they made it 130. Next renewal 145. None of which is remotely true now, but still lol. Never did anyone at the DMV ask for an update, it was simply changed as they saw fit lol.

Mine still says 155, which is what it said when I got my license at age 16 (32 years ago!). My weight hasn't been close to that for over 20 years, and until just recently it was off by about 90 pounds. Only once over all those years did anyone at the DMV ask me if the weight was the same. I looked him in the eyes and said steadily, "Close enough." I think my expression was enough to keep him from asking any more questions!

I was so excited to check mine (for my weight 3 years ago!) and track my progress, but PA doesn't report weight. Ah, well. I definitely lied about my height, though...

When I first got my license I think it said I was 125 which was true but on my renewal it said 160 but I was pregnant and was really 200 or so at the time and they asked me what I thought I would be after delivery.

It still says 160, they never asked at the next renewal and I never pointed it out that the weight was wrong.

Now I could go get it lowered!

Mine said 120 since 1981. I could change it to reflect my lower weight now but I figure it kind of evens out in the end. Sometimes I weighed alot more and sometimes I weighed less............besides its really not any nosey clerks business....

I think I have you all beat. Mine still says 160. The same as when it was issued in 1993. And it was a lie in '93! The lie just got bigger with each passing year.

Mine said 140 until last April. When I got a new liscense in 4/2000 I wasn't sure what I weighed but I knew I was way under the 200 of my previous license. I had a dr appt shortly after getting it and I was 128 ~ so I lied

I got a new license on 4/2009 my old weight was still 140 from 2000. I changed it to 160. The guy at the counter asked if I really wanted to change it to one 160! He said ladies never change it!I was really 170's (so I lied!).

Now I'm really lying because I'm 193.4! I hope to not be lying about the 160 in a few months
