Default Would like to say hello

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.

Great start with the 70 lbs!

Oh, and Howdy neighbor!
