If asked, do you lie about your weight?

    If asked, do you lie about your weight?

    Because you think your fooling someone else or yourself!  Your scale is off a sliver!

    Yes, because I hope my scale is off by 5 lbs!

    well, actually, I don't own a scale- but my POV would be "why on earth would someone ask a question like that?"  Unless the person is your doctor or someone similar who might have a reason, it seems like a pointless & out-of-line question.

    Unless it is by a medical provider, it would certainly be rude to ask that quesiton.  No way I could lie about it.  It would be pointless as one of my friends or family are blind - they can see me quite clearly.

    I do not lie about my weight. I stress to make sure I'm the right size that I want to be. Health is a major factor for me.

    I used to, but since I've lost a great deal of weight, I am no longer embarassed to state my true weight.

    I don't lie, but I don't tell either since I am over the three oh oh.

    I couldn't lie if I wanted to.  I have no idea what I weigh.  Haven't been on a scale in 3 years....even at the Dr.'s......It says right on my chart:  "Pt. will not get on scale, do not insist.".......and just the other day I found out that there's a whole lot of women (especially my age-bracket) who flatly refuse to be's why, rutley.    Many years of obsessing about numbers.....weight, money, bills, income, number of friends, calories, fat grams...blah blah......At a certain point in relax and enjoy life.  Embrace who we are, flaws, a little flab, grey hairs, wrinkles...and all.   Don't ask how old I am, how much I weigh, how much money I have or certainly NOT how many ex-lovers.........and we'll get along marvelously!!

    No I don't because I feel good about myself. And others should know that there is nothing to be ashamed of whatever size you are, each one is unique and beautiful!
