Difference in facial appearance b/w healthy and unhealthy weight loss?

People who have low body fat due to anorexia, disease, etc., look visibly unhealthy. People such as body builders and actors who have low body fat look healthy. I guess I can understand that "little amount of fat over large amount of muscle" looks healthy while "little amount of fat over little amount of muscle" looks unhealthy, but since people generally don't lift weights with their faces, necks, etc., it would seem that their faces would look the same, but that's not the case. What causes the unhealthiness of anorexic/disease/etc. weight-loss to be apparent in the face and neck?

What's this mass?

Hernia filter: I have a protrusion under my belly button on the right side, almost parallel to the hip bone. You can only see it if I lean back, but then it is very visible. It's about 4 inches long, 1.5 inches wide and is spongy (almost like a gas bubble or bloat). It does not hurt. Hernia? [more inside]

Good StrongLifts-type dumbell exercise programs?

This $20/month gym looks awesome... but it doesn't have barbells, so I can't do StrongLifts 5x5. Should I go back to my old gym, or do you guys have an alternative structured dumbbell/machine-based/bodyweight strength training program? Or a better gym suggestion in downtown Manhattan? [more inside]

What are some sports I can do to improve my torso?

I can't seem to find the time to do any kind of sport these days months years, but I'm still pretty fit. Even though, I'd like to build some muscles (à la Lester Burnham, you know, "I want to look good naked!").
I can't do push-ups anymore because of my back pains, so I'm looking for easy exercices, like "do this 100 times" or "do this for a minute" (or more), to pratice every day whe[r|n]ever I am (right before I take a shower is good) to improve mainly my torso, but why not other parts aswell.
I don't want to join a club/gym if I can help...
