I am posting this under the Stuff Fat People Do category, but I really think that everyone does this.
Did you lie about your weight on your driver license? Come on. Did you?
My wife asked me a little while ago, with no prompting, if I weighed less than my driver’s license said I did. Wow! Did I? It was like some wild thought provoker! I couldn’t remember what I had put, so I ran and got my wallet to check.
When I first got my license I was 15 years old. Yehaw South Carolina! I have no idea what I weighed back then but I know that I lied on the paperwork. When I renewed my license several years later I know for a fact that I weighed more than the 250 that I put. It was just too easy.
I recently renewed my license again and I know without a doubt that I weighed between 320 and 340 pounds. You know what I put on the paper work?
Ha! I was trying to give myself something to work towards I guess. I am not really sure why I put that. To be honest, I was thinking I would put 275, because like I said, no one ever looks!
Well there it is. My license reads 290 pounds. That is 40 or more pounds less than what I actually weighed. And here I am now, under my DL weight by 24 pounds or so. What an awesome feeling. I am now thinking about when I can go back to the DMV and update my weight again.
Should I put 220 pounds so that when I reach my goal I will already have it documented on my official government issued identification?
By how many pounds did you fabricate your driver’s license weight? What are you doing to close the gap?
