Did I Just Lie to the DMV?

Recently I went to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) to get my new Illinois license. The man behind the counter was extremely chatty and we exchanged pleasantries and conversation while he processed my paperwork. He told me about his wife and his plans to move to Colorado soon, I shared a story about my kids and our recent move from Pittsburgh.
We were simpatico – until he asked me what my weight was, and I lied right to his face.
