Drivers license...

A funny thought came to me at the gym. I finally weigh less than what my drivers license says! You are probably wondering "why does this matter". It is a symbol to me. When I was 16 I dreaded putting that "number" on my divers license. I was so paranoid about others knowing my weight, I stressed over this.

When I re-newed my license I finally accepted that I needed to put myself over 200 lbs. but I stuck with a lower number. (wishful thinking) I am now lower than the weight on the little plastic card... I love it!

Looking back: I used to make myself almost sick worrying about what the Dr. or school nurse would say about my weight. I hated being weighed. I didn't want to know how out of control I was. Now I can't be more willing (maybe a little obsessed) to know and share my number. It is a measurement of how far i have come and how much I have grown.

Side note: Still stuck at my 92 lbs. I am so close to the 100 lb. loss that I am getting frustrated earlier than normal. All I can do is keep my head up.

  1. One of my goals is to actually get back to my driver's license weight! Although I don't know if I was ever honest about it in the first place... lol. I remember sitting next to everyone in Driver's Ed and seeing their weights as I filled out the forms, and I was so embarrassed.
