With my wedding now a month away and the stress eating away at me - literally! - I have lost an unintentional 9 or 10 lbs. I also got sick about a month ago and have had a somewhat limited diet since then because I had an allergy scare. As a result, while I am not starving myself, I'm eating a really clean (organic meats, organic fruits and veggies, grain products, fat sources, etc with NO junk or additives because those things may have caused my allergy) but balanced diet. Maybe it's just the clean eating and stress that's causing the weight loss, but I didn't need to lose weight to begin with, at least not beyond the customary 5 "vanity pounds", and my dress has already been taken in twice. And while I am looking thinner, my muscle tone rather sucks. It's not visible flab/cellulite, but I feel "squishy", if that makes sense...like you can grab soft flesh here and there. Is this "skinny fat"? My BMI comes out to 20.5.
I don't like building lots of muscle and looking "beefy" so I do Callanetics, exercises that bear your own weight (such as push ups and planks) and lots of walking.
I'm not looking to do anything drastic (and I don't want to keep losing weight) especially right now and I'm sure as usual I'm worrying over nothing, but if there's anything I could do exercise-wise to tighten things up a bit in addition to what I'm doing, I'm open to suggestions. I was thinking along the lines of ballet, yoga type stuff as I don't want to lift heavy weights and start looking like a body builder (I also have a former back injury). And going forward after the wedding, I just want to stay healthy.
Thanks in advance!
