I went to the DMV this morning to change my old name on my driver’s licence to my new married name. I was filling out the application and it asked when my licence expired and while looking at it I noticed that my DL weight is several, ok a lot of pounds under what I really weigh… by 25 lbs!!!! What the heck? I think the last time I weighed what my licence says is 1983, the year I got married the first time!!!
I’ve been fortunate and haven’t been stopped by the police in years but I wonder what he or she would think after seeing I’m a wee bit over what I think I weigh. The words “Uh yeah, right lady” come to mind.
Without revealing the exact amount on your licence and your weight, how many pounds is it off or is it correct?

Hmm….my PA license doesn’t have weight! But my height is 2 inches shorter than what I am…

Thankfully NY state doesn’t require our weight to be listed on our licenses. Honestly, I don’t think I could live in a state that did. It seems absolutely pointless.

They don’t have weight on licenses here…just height and eye color.

I actually set a goal for myself that I wouldn’t get a new license with my updated name until my actual weight matched my license weight. It was 18lbs over the correct weight but I hit my goal just before new years eve!! So mine is dead on! hooray

Uh mine is quite a bit lower. Like 30-40 pounds lower! Haha. I’m bold! But it’s not like I weight 140 and I put 100… I’m very plus sized, so I think when you’re heavier, people have a harder time guessing weight. And the lady at the DMV didn’t question it.

Haha, I’m 20 lbs heavier than my license said. When I went to get my name changed when I got married, they asked if all that information was still correct, and I said “yup!”

After losing 120 pounds I can say for the first time in 6+ years my drivers license weight is actually correct.
My next goal is for it to be too high, we shall see.

KLloyd1 … My date twin!!! Congrats on your weight loss!! That’s awesome, 18lbs makes a big difference in how you look and feel.

My driver’s license weight is still listed as my weight when I was seventeen years old. I’d say that I wish I still weighed that, but I need to be about 20 heavier to look like a healthy adult women, and I much prefer that. 🙂

Mine says about 17lbs less than what i currently weigh. But I just had a baby so I’m not hating myself too much for it.
