I am a 37 year old overweight female.  My heart skips beats, usually after I consume caffeine. Is this something that needs to be addressed with more than just watching my food intake?

Only a doctor can tell you for sure the significance of your skipped beats but almost certainly lifestyle changes would either decrease them or eliminate them altogether.  I stopped drinking caffeine and got in shape and my skipped beats are essentially non-existent now.  If I were you, I'd try quitting caffeine.  That alone will likely eliminate them.
