weight gain and tubal ligation

I recently had a tubal ligation (Halloween day), and I have been trying to lose weight. I have been working very hard since Jan 1st, lifting weights and doing cardio. I have also been eating well (mostly fruits and veggies). I have only lost two pounds. I have heard that after a tubal ligation most women gain weight for about 6 months afterwards. Is this true? I guess it makes me feel better if it is, because at least I am maintaning my weight instead of gaining. I've posted about not losing the wieght on an earlier (weeks ago) discussion, but I jsut recently heard this about after tying your tubes. :frown:
