Are You Open About How Much You Weigh?

It's an unspoken rule that it's rude to ask how much someone weighs, but sometimes the topic comes up in conversations. If you're proud of your weight, maybe because you've worked hard to lose a certain number of pounds, then you may want to tell others what the scale says. On the other hand, if you've let yourself go a little, you may be more reluctant to share. So tell me . . .

I don't have a scale but I'll share my clothing size.

My weight is like in the middle lower half for my height group. And I think I look great physically, so I tell how much I weigh any chance I get. I think if I can love my body at the weight I am at then I should be willing to set the example of self confidence for the other girls and women around me.

I share with my trainer and my sister (we share trainer, so I don't try very hard to keep it a secret from her) but I do prefer to avoid discussing the actual number, but ok to discuss how much I'd lost or gained. But being short, I am lighter than what people would guess looking at my build (broad shoulders). Not very good at factoring away at least a head worth's less of weight...

I actually bump my weight up about 5lbs when I tell people. I know that I am too thin and would love to put on a few, especially on my arms, but it's harder than you think!

i share with my friends, as most of them are crazy obsessed with their weight and they always suck me into it. my parents also ask about it all the time, because i'm overweight and they want me to lose some.but it's like come on, if you're good at this you don't even have to ask people, you pretty much can tell. if i ask - it's just to compare myself to other people and try and see myself in terms how i look next to them.

I dont even know how much i weight, I think with this recent turn of lifestyles in the last few years with everyone trying to get healthy and drop weight, weve all become really obsessed with numbers instead of health, which is super easy to do.

Despite that I'm considered quite a bit overweight for my height/age (169lbs), I have no problem telling people how much I weigh or what size I wear. Regardless of what number you give them, your size or shape isn't going to change in their eyes. Why lie? Besides, the more women lie about their weight/size, the more unrealistic expectations people have about what certain sizes and weights look like.

Maybe I'd have more than one milkshake in each hand. I can't decide on only two flavors right now.

I wouldn't mind sharing if it didn't seem like everyone had to follow it up with a comment like "you're so lucky" or "I guess you can just eat whatever you want." Um, no. I weigh what I weigh because I don't eat everything I want. If I did that, I would have a milkshake in each hand right now.

I'm undergoing a lifestyle change and I've lost about 25lbs over the last 2 years and I have about 25 more to go. When I actually share my weight with friends they tend to be surprised because the actual number is higher than what I look (LOL being tall seriously helps with this). I'm a work in progress so I'm not ashamed to share. It's just a number.. its how you feel and how healthy you are that matters most.

I typically don't have a problem sharing, but I hate it when I'm honest and everyone else clearly isn't. Then I feel like a fatty.

I don't mind sharing my weight. I look thin, but I recently gained some muscle so I'm heavier than I look. Its kind of funny.

For real total! If she needs to stand like that on the scale, she needs glasses.

PS. If you'll allow an immature moment: the model in the photograph looks like she is going to the bathroom - not weighing herself! lol

I was somewhat curious if anyone was going to post their weight! I'm not that open myself, but I don't always keep my numbers a secret :)

@Not fat--LOL, the same thing used to happen to me when I was really heavy. My doctor's nurse would always start the scale bar at 140ish and she was always stunned when she had to click it over to the 150 mark and then slide the little bar to close to 200. She always remarked that I must be wearing lead clothes, lol.

I don't mind sharing, but it's always funny when I do because most people don't think I weigh as much as I do. I'm really muscular and I wear my weight well, so even when I was 90 lbs. heavier, people would never have guessed it. I don't really go by weight though; it's really deceptive and I'd rather go by how I look and how my clothes fit to determine if I'm at a good weight.

depends on on the audience. I know I'm way healthy and I wear a size 8 but I think if you didn't see me and know me you'd think my weight was fairly high for my height.

After losing 60 pounds, yes I am very open about my current weight, and my previous weight btw. :-) Im very proud of myself.
