I wasn't satisfied with myself. 
There were people who said that I was fine the way I was, but somehow, that didn't feel right to me.
I felt like I could change- change in a way that would feel right. 

I feel like that's finally happening.

Its still hard to forgive myself sometimes.
But at least now, it wasn't as bad as it used to be.
And that's progress.

There's still things I can't change about myself, not on my own.
But things I can change on my own feel so satisfying when they happen.
And that's progress.

I still have this grand vision of what I'd rather be.
But I'm working towards becoming the person I could be.
And that's progress.

Its hard to forget all of the things that's happened to me.
But I've made better memories that I think will stay with me for a long time.
And that's progress.

Sometimes its hard to imagine being myself than anything else.
But I've done things that I'm really proud of- things I could never imagine doing.
And that's progress.

I don't know how close I am towards my goals.
But I feel like I've come a long way from where I've started.
That's certainly progress.

I've changed, but am I really my ideal self?
Not really. Not yet.
But I'm taking all of the experience I can to get to the next level.

And that's okay.
Feeling good for the moment won't mean you'll feel good later.
Aster knows that, but now she's got more to feel good about.

Preachy message aside, Aster losing weight has been something that's been in the back of my head. 
Sooo...there's the update.
