When I was 242 pounds I would tell the truth and most people would say there is no way you weigh that much. So I would just say your right I'm much closer to 220. The only thing good about being a stocky little man is you can hide a lot of weight.

I've fudged a bit, especially on the driver's license. Now I don't need to lie.
I used to avoid the question or lie. Now I don't, in fact I'm looking forward to having to get a new license on my birthday this year. I will tell the truth about my weight and get a new picutre, yeah! I am finally below the weight on my drivers license.

No, I always knew my own weight even though at time at my highest of 335 lbs I never wanted to accept it..Others could see I was/am fat so no one knew except my doctor. 100 lbs gone as of today! 80 lbs more to go!
No one other than a doctor or maybe a small aircfaft pilot has any business asking someone how much they weigh. It's rude and I have no problem telling someone that it is none of their business and they should not be asking such a personal question.

I have lied to some people or I just avoid the question. I don't see where it's any of their business.

With my hair color and weight on my drivers license - if I were ever injured in an auto accident - they would look high and low for me!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm...my doctors never ask, they actually weigh me. Nobody else really needs to know or has the right to ask. I have two or three people who are very close to me who know, but other than that, it just doesn't come up.
I'm in one of those states where you get a new sticker every few years but keep the same old license for ages. I think that my license is about 15 years old and it says 200. That was probably the truth at the time (or maybe I was just estimating to the nearest round number)and it is *close* to being the truth again.

No one has ever asked but I wouldn't lie. It is just a number and I don't see the point in saying it is less than it is. I wouldn't lie about my age, height or shoe size either.
Except for the doctor's office I never give my weight and I have had the same picture and weight on my driver's license because it is good for ten years so I don't lie but just don't give my weight in numbers.
I don't lie. I just tell them it is NONE of their business. The only people that really need to know are my doctor and myself(besides the spark community). I do share that info with my mother, because we're both trying to lose weight. I can look intimidating enough that if someone other than my doctor asked me that, they'd quickly apologize.
I always used to lie about my weight. In my mind, I didn't think anyone would ever be able to tell how much I really weighed because I feel like I carry my weight very well. I am technically overweight and have been for most of my adult life, however I don't think I look overweight. Most people would guess I weigh even less than what I used to say I weighed. When I was around 175, I would always claim 155. I'm getting more comfortable about telling people what I weight though. Every person looks differently at the same weight. I look better than some people who are the same height and weight as I am simply because of the amount of muscle I have and how I carry the weight that I do have. I am 170 pounds. I am technically overweight, but I look good and I am proud of that. I am still working on losing some more, but it's mostly so I can honestly say that I weigh 150 or whatever it is I eventually decide on as my goal.

No worries I always say I am 10 lbs less than I really am!
Back before I started losing weight, I avoided ever talking about it. I would dodge the question, make a joke, or say (honestly) that I wasn't sure because I hadn't weighed myself recently. I only told it when I had to- medical professionals and the like. I was always honest with them, because I didn't want my safety to be in danger.
Last night I was jokingly pushing a guy friend and I said, "I bet I weigh more than you". And he asked me how much I weighed. I hesitated, and ended up saying I weighed 10 pounds less than I do. I almost told the truth, but then decided that it would be the truth soon enough! Turns out we actually weigh the same.
Doctors, fellow sparkers, and people close to you aside- do you lie when people ask you how much you weigh? Did you used to before you started losing weight?
