Hi Everyone!

My name is Kelly, and I'm back on SparkPeople for the 2nd time. My first time through, I lost 50 lbs and kept it off for about 2 years. Then, about 2 years ago, the weight started creeping back on (I got overexhuberant about vegan baking), and then 6 months ago I started getting tons and tons of PVCs (premature ventricular contractions). It took me 6 months of fear and 3 doctors to tell me that my PVCs are benign, and though scary, nothing to be worried about.

I got the go-ahead to start exercizing again (something scary, but necessary), and here I am!

It's only been 2 weeks, but I think my heart is liking the exercize, because I think I'm having fewer PVCs throughout the day. Exercizing aggravates them, but even that seems to be going away.

I'm on a high dose of Metoprolol now to help control them, and I'm going to see the doctor about reducing the dose sometime soon, as I've heard that it can actually cause weight gain (or difficult weight loss).... I don't need anything working against me!

Anyway, I've never even really thought about my heart much, but now it is on my mind every minute of every day, with those PVCs being greedy for my attention.... so I though I would just give in to it, and join this group dedicated to healthy hearts!

Nice to meet you all!!!!
