Finally Stopped Lying to the DMV



Recommended Posts

I lied to the DMV for so many years, by over 50 lbs. No one ever said a word. But, my favorite NSV is being special screened after losing all my weight. TSA did not think it was me.

Ah, the joys the the VSG. I love my sleeve and have no regrets.

Congrats!

This is too funny! I just achieved this milestone this week and was sooo excited (I made it a status update lol)! I thought I was the only one who noticed or fudged the numbers by as much as I did on my license. I was 5 ft 2 1/2 in and weighed 218 lbs but put that I was 165 lbs. Now I am 2 lbs below that fudged number woohoo. Hopefully I'm going to be lying in the opposite way soon and be way under that weight. When I hit goal one of my rewards will be new DL stats and a new pic (otherwise I'm stuck with this pic for 4 1/2 more years because I just got this license renewed this year!)

Went to the DMV last week and got the picture retaken and weight changed 145. I should have waited until goal, but I got funny looks from the TSA. I don't need them taking me to the strip/interrogation room.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
