" When I was an obese teenager, I never dreamt that my journey would lead me to where I am today. In fact, the idea of transforming and the work that it would involve often sent me running for my greatest comfort...food. It wasn't until I realized a truth about life that would change me forever...all I needed to do for right this minute was take just one step.
One step led to a walk, one step led healthier food choices, one step led to winning the Miss South Carolina crown and one step led me to you right now. I realized that each little step fit together to build my path to transformation and a life I could never have imagined; however, if I didn't start taking steps, I would have been trapped forever.
I am not going to pretend that the journey is easy but I am here to say that if you take just one step right this minute, your journey to health and happiness has begun. It only takes a few little steps to notice a real change but for now let's focus on just one step. All I ask is that you join my family of 'one-step wonders' and together, we can change ourselves and the world...one step at a time."
