Question... I seem to have gained a few inches in my waist, lower tummy, although I have actually lost about 15 lbs in 2 months. I also am having trouble not being.. Umm.. Humped for the lack of a better word, when sitting without back support, or standing. Normal, or something I should bring up to my docs?

Unfortunately this seems to be normal but I would still mention it. The belly thing is perplexing although many pals have this issue. The hump, if it is in your neck and or upper back is probably due to muscle atrophy. Still worth mentioning.

I have read that the increased stomach size is caused by the muscles wasting in the stomach just letting the fat and other things just "bubble" out.
