If someone asks, I don't have a problem telling, but when I think about it, no one really ever asked me.....I volunteer it out sometimes....

I've never been one to give my weight out, but since I've been dieting, I've started to say it to more people. I actually told my boyfriend how much I weigh. It's taken me 4 years to do that! wow

A few people have asked me, but only when they find out im doing weightwatchers. i think its to try and work out if they need to as well based on what weight i am. but over here its not pounds, its stones. and theres a range that everyone wants to be between (8 - 11) and since i'm a bit over 11 i always hated saying what i was. once i get down into ten, even if its 10 stone 13.5 ill still be much happier!

My best friend, my sister, my doctor and the weight watchers ladies are the only ones who know how much I weigh. Oh yeah, and you all! My husband is only privy to how much I have lost. It is the only secret that I keep from him.

The day I weighed less than my husband I was shouting out the number LOL. I've always been heavier than him, and I'm 10 inches shorter. Now I'm 25 pounds lighter .

I just told my best friend my real weight. It was kind of liberating.

The ppl at WW, my dh, and maybe my sil/bff. I would have to think about sharing it if someone random asked. I would have to consider their motives, but if it would help someone else join WW or lose weight I would share. I think that its kind of like when a celebrity gets plastic surgery its very obvious but they don't admit it. You can't hide what is in plain sight, and if its helpful share!

I have started telling my friends how much I weigh. I figure the more people that know I am on WW and losing, the more accountable I am!

Me too! Also with weight watchers, that's it. My doctor has never weighed me (that I'm not a healthy weight is obvious), but I did tell her how much I've lost so far. I didn't actually tell my husband, but I very bravely held my breath and showed him the cool stickers in my WW book after I lost 25 lbs. He didn't fall off of his chair or anything!

It's no one else's business, and I'd be shocked if someone had the gall to ask. A few have asked how much I've lost, but I give a vague answer like, "a bit" or "not as much as I'd like". They weren't people who needed to lose weight themselves, and they were only aquaintances, so I would say they were asking for curiosity and/or conversation, neither of which is a good enough reason to divulge intimate information! For me, anyway.

My hubby knows. He & I are both working on our weight, so we both know each other's.

I can't remember if I told my mom or if we just tell each other if we've lost or gained for the week. I think I might have told my sister at one time...She and her dh had also been doing WW, and she was my inspiration to start.

I don't think I'd tell anyone other than family or a close friend if it came up. And of course I have no qualms sharing it here or in another weight support group.

I would only tell my husband and my bff. Other then that, the only person who has ever asked me is my sister in law. I just say that I don't tell anyone that. (Telling her would be like announcing it to everyone in a 20 mile radius.) Oh, of course I don't mind sharing here either.
