One word for you: Spanx. I'm sure that's how all the other skinny ladies like you are hiding their little belly bump.

I'm "blessed" with a rounder physique. And no, I'm not "giving in" or "giving up." I can see my frickin' ribs and sometimes I can even see my abs. I can squat my bodyweight and a 20 mile hike up hill in minimalist footwear after a year of barely hiking at all didn't even give me sore feet. I could have done another 5 miles no problem. But I remain somewhat rounded and soft compared to those posters of Ms. Yoga Hot Pants. I reject the notion that that is the ONLY sign of health and vitality. This culture, whether we're talking about the general one or this fitness one, has gone insane with mistaking the signifier for the signified. There are many signifiers and you and I both possess versions of them.
Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
