Most especially, though, welcome back to the Faith. We missed you when you were gone - as we all struggle when someone is missing, but rejoice with them upon their return!
I agree with you about faith being more a part of you than your weight - how true! It is very important to include our faith in our weight loss or healthy journey. Our body cannot get healthy unless our soul is as well.
Please feel free to ask questions about the site. We have many experienced sparkers in the team.
Come on over and join in our August challenge under the challenges forum. Ask if you have trouble getting there, but you should see it on the main team page.
What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Welcome Back.. Me too. but one thing at a time and the difference is phenomenal. To me it was like going home.
Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal 2 COR 16-18
Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

Just want to introduce myself. I'm a revert Catholic who learned of the SparkPeople site through a post on Catholic Answers Forum.
When I first joined, the first search I did was a search for a Catholic Message board as my faith is more a part of me than my weight is :D I think since our faith is such an intregal part of a person that it's important to include it in all areas of our lives.
Pleased to meet you, and please be patient as I learn how to use this site, it's very foreign to me right now.
