Difficult to say: Without knowing much about your mother's overall health or other risk factors, it could be the heart, could be reflex, could be muscle spasm.

Maybe: Hiccups can be caused by irritation of the diaphragm. If he has jaundice and light color stool, he may have a gallbladder or liver condition that could certainly irritate the diaphragm and cause hiccups. I recommend that he be evaluated for those conditions by his doctor.

Yes: You are losing weight at the recommended rate of 1 lb per week. As long as the change that you have made are understood as lifestyle changes and not just changes that are made until you get to your goal weight, you are doing very well. Keep up the good work.
