My newest up to my drivers license

Last week I had to renew my drivers license. I came to the point on the form that I had to put my weight down. It was then I struggled with what to put down. Most of my time on my previous licenses was well over the stated weight, and now I'm 20 pounds under what I put down last time. I'm not sure why I had to even think about it, but I guess years of failure has taken its toll on my expectations of myself. Deep inside I know that I am a skinny guy now, but the inner Clyde is always there fighting to get out. I've come to the conclusion that this weight maintenance is a lifetime battle. I have also decided to win it for the rest of my life. With that in mind, I put 175 pounds on the form with no intention of returning to my former Clyde self.
