Anybody get, or plan to get, a new skinny drivers license pic?

I plan to get a new drivers license picture when I reach my goal weight. I'll be about 60lbs lighter from my current picture. Hey, maybe I will even weigh less than what I currently list on my license (I lie about it too!).

Has anyone else done this, or plan to when they reach their goal weight?

My old pic isn't that bad, but I should go get one now that I have lost weight - also so my weight is accurate!

We have mail-in renewals in my state. I just hope that I'll someday look like my picture on my driver's license again....

The last time I renewed my drivers license the clerk actually challenged the truth of the weight I listed! How embarrassing! OK I fudged15 pounds but really!
When I lose the weight and finally become the weight on my license I will get a new picture.

That sounds like an EXCELLENT way to reward yourself! It'll cost you time in the DMV and $25, but I'd say it's worth it!

OP here - Cool, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I used to get compliments on my previous 3 DMV pictures from store clerks, etc. It seemed my best pictures were always my DMV pictures, go figure. Now I don't like my picture so I'm looking forward to retaking it. You know you don't have to wait until it's up for renewal. You can take a new pic anytime, at least in CA you can. I plan to be below my stated weight when I get my new pic, and I've been lying about my weight for years.
