I'm new here and would like to say hello and introduce myself to everyone. My name is Paula, I'm 41 years old and from Massachusetts. Back in april after having a very irregular heartbeat, I had a icd pacemaker put in. After that I spent 2 months in a rehab recovering and gaining strength, while in there I lost alot of weight, due to strict diet and rehab excercises. I was released in the middle of June and have been dieting and excercising on my own and in total I've lost a little over 70 lbs. I still have a LONG way to go and feel I need more support, so I googled "weight loss support" and this site came up and I joined.
Anyway, before I keep rambling on I wanted to give a hello to you all and hope you are doing well. :)
