    I’m honest about it but mostly because I’m fairly “dense” so everyone’s reaction is always “NO WAY” haha.

    I used to. After losing 120 pounds I don’t. I’m not my ideal weight but I am a lot more comfortable with my number.

    I’m completely honest about everything.  My real hair color, my weight, how much I paid for something LOL

    it is what it is.

    It’s not really something that comes up with my friends. I’m overweight and very insecure, and if it came up I would probably lie.

    A few weeks ago we were renting ski’s for a weekend trip and I lied on the forms they had us fill out. I also lied on my license.

    Yes I do! I weigh a LOT more than people usually think, so I prefer to just either dodge the question or give a “range’ which is usually a lot less than I actually weigh. I’m wayyyy insecure about my weight, so it’s not something I do to ‘decieve’ or intentionally mislead people, I just don’t want the world knowing how heavy I really am!!

    Nah, I don’t lie, but I think people think I’m skinnier than I really am.  My waist is slim, but my legs and butt are fat.

    Oh god yes. I don’t want to see anyone’s face that horrified! Of course there’s no lying to doctors etc…

    Generally speaking I don’t think it’s anyone’s business but my own what I weigh, so I wouldn’t normally answer.  (Then again, I don’t have any girl friends, so it would be a nosy coworker or someone like that asking…) I’m not ashamed of what I weigh, I just don’t feel like that’s an appropriate thing to ask someone!

    I don’t lie about it. People will have a general idea of what you weigh by looking at you, so there’s no point to lie about it. I dunno, never really thought about it much.

    I can’t say that anyone ever really asks me. But I did lie on my driver’s license!

    I was tempted to lie at my midwife office (they have you weigh yourself!) but I didn’t because that would give an inaccurate weight profile. But I also tell people it’s none of their effing business if they ask and aren’t doctors.

    Who is going around asking women what they weigh?! I mean, other than the doctor, the BMV when you’re renewing your license, or your BFF, no one should be asking you that. If someone was rude enough to ask, I totally call them out on being a jerk. I’m not ashamed, so I wouldn’t lie, but seriously, NOT COOL.

    I never lied about my weight, but I definitely didn’t tell anyone what I weighed either. Nowadays I am very comfortable with my weight/body.

    I used to be jealous of girls who weighed less than me just because their number was lower, it was stupid.
