Sweet Sixteen

The information that is on my license was all recorded when I first turned sixteen and became eligible to drive. I still have the same facts printed on each renewed card stating my eye colour, my height, and that I weigh 155 pounds. Even at my highest weight, this obvious untruth was still listed on a piece of official government identification and was a sad testament to how far I had let myself go.

Yesterday, I was showing a close friend the different format they are now using for the new licenses and realized, as I pulled mine out, that it still says 155. It’s still a liar, but only so now because I weigh less than I did at sixteen years old!


  1. that is the best kind of reward for all your hard work - congratulations!

  2. Wonderful! That's better than finding money in the pocket of an old coat you pull out after summertime. :)

  3. If that's not a wonderful thing I don't know what is! In our state they don't list a weight. At my highest weight I would have been glad!

    Congratulations to you!

  4. ha
    you are going to have to go in and tell them you need to drop the weight on that card.

  5. I was so thrilled when I realized that yesterday! And I totally agree, Chris! As soon as I am into maintainance mode, I will be demanding that be changed - lol!
