T is for Truth

The Monday workout - Ab work while the husband read to the little one. I participated in bed time story time by doing ab work in her room. Once she was in bed I headed down to the garage for 45 minutes on the Spin bike. Followed by a brief arm workout, I won't really call it an arm workout because I got freaked out by the way my veins were blue and popping out of my chest area and arms. I tried to take a photo of it but it didn't look right. My husband confirmed that there is nothing wrong with me and that its normal to look that way.  I can't wait for warm weather so I can get a nice natural looking tan and no longer have to see my veins sticking out.

Yesterday, I received a notice that I need to renew my drivers licences.  In Washington,  every 5 years you have to renew. I have until April to renew mine. Everyone lies about their weight on their drivers licence right?  The last time mine was updated was in 2004, when I changed my licence to my married name. The asked my my weight and updated it to 200lbs, even though I weighed more. I figured no one was going to believe I was 150lbs anymore.  When I went back in 2007 they just had me pay the fee and kept all of the information the same.  So, do I tell the truth and leave the weight the same or do I knock 20lbs  off. I am thinking of knocking at least 20lbs off. I mean I am stuck with this thing for the next 5 years, I might as well put a weight I am not going to cringe at when I look at my licences.

Does your drivers licences have your correct weight? Is it higher or lower?

  1. My license never has my correct weight. I try to fudge 5-10 pounds either way. :)

  2. It's been awhile since renewing so I had no idea and I was scared to take a look! I am ABSOLUTELY sure I lied when I originally got my license, but I'm happy to say that I am now actually 5 pounds LESS then what I have on my license! I know that when I renew again that I will say even less....maybe I can use it as motivation to actually get to that weight?!?!

  6. I don't even think the state of NJ has my weight. Is it listed on your actual license? I know when I first got my license in PA and had to get a physical the dr put my weight down on the paper(but I was thin back then so it didn't matter) but it wasn't on the license.

  7. L is for LIE! LIE LIE LIE!!! I definitely LIE on mine - but not by 20 pounds - heck no, by like 50 or more ;) When I moved to VA back in 1997 the DMV lady couldn't believe that IN put the weight on the license. I'll never forget her saying, "Isn't that kind of personal?" Ii said, "it's alright, no one tells the truth anyway!"
    Definitely 20 pounds less - you'll have that 20 pounds gone before the end of the year so yeah, LIE!

  9. Funny story: I've had licenses in three states, and all of them just use the height/weight/eye/hair from the old license. So I am exactly the same as I was my 16th birthday.

  10. I don't understand what the point is that your weight is on your driver's license? Sounds stupid to me.

    In Holland only your name, date of birth and place of birth is on your driver's license.
