When this woman is upset with her mother, she asks Reddit:
I (23F) live in the US, and I visited my mom in SE Asia (Philippines) this month after we have not seen each other in 5 years due to my studies.
I meant to visit in 2020, but the pandemic made it unfeasible. I’m also now working in my first job out of college, from which I used up all my PTO and personal holidays for this 3 week visit.
I was 240 pounds at 5’9 this August, which my mom was aware of because I told her back then; she had asked me after I texted her that I booked a flight home for December.
I currently weigh 212 pounds. It’s not amazing progress (an average of 5.6 lbs per month), but I’m proud of my weight loss so far despite needing ~30 pounds more to lose.
