Anyone else fib on their driver's license???

I just got my license renewed and I fibbed on my weight. I working towards 135 and that's what I put down ( I am actually 143). I'm feeling guilty. :(

Are you crazy? I bet there are way, way, WAY, more people who DO fib on your DL than don't. Yes, I fib. I got mine renewed in Sept. and I weighed 161 then, but I told them 150.
What is the most any one has fibbed and gotten away with it?

Mine says I'm 110, and I'm 125 now. They've never asked me to update the weight part, so I don't know if it's a big deal or not? I guess if I was to update it, I'd tell the truth.

Mine has said 135 since I was 16,but this time I upped it to 145 since I'm actually *gulp* 165. I'm an honest person in my day to day life but they already know how old I am so screw 'em.

I can just imagine the clerks at the DMV scoffing as they enter the data but what are they going to do? "Hell no, honey... I weigh 150 and you're way fatter than me." hehe

of course! Actually when I got mine renewed the woman was like you look about 135-140 right? (I am 165) I was like sure, if I look it! She put 139 and that is where it will stay unless I get below that weight and then of course I would renew it correctly!

I got away with a 30 pound difference. I weighed 195 when I got my new DL, and I wrote 165 on the paper. The woman looked at me like I was nuts, but typed it in anyway. I'm now down to 175, so I hope I can make it below my DL weight soon!!!

My goal is to be the weight on my driver's license. ;-) Actually my goal is to be 115lbs. I plan to get a new drivers license picture when I lose all the weight.

It's been 130lbs for years and years. I have not been 130lbs in about 12 years.

You know... I have to get my license renewed, but I don't think the picture needs to be updated this year... Bummer-- I totally look fatter in my last license picture than I want to be... However, I really want to wait until I've lost some more weight before getting a new license! :-)

Mine has gone from 110 to 115 to 120 over the past 7 years (I'm 23), and my weight was generally close to 10lbs more than it said. Now it says 120, and I'm actually 120! Cool!

When I got my last DL it said my weight was 150, but I was more like 175. Now I'm at 136 and when I hit 125 I'm totally getting a new license with the correct weight!

big fib

I was close to 200lbs when I renewed and left my weight at 135. Of course, I was pregant (obviously showing) when the guy asked if my weight had changed. :)

I love my imaginary weight and my slim and young picture on my driver's license. I am currently at 196 pounds but my dl says 169 pounds....hey, 69, 96 officers don't care.
