Unexplained weight: loss can be a sign of systemic disease. While you may just have something you are doing slightly differently leading to weight loss and you may be completely healthy, see a physician just to make sure there is not some type of systemic issue that could be leading to unexplained weight loss. Make sure to explain to your physician any lifestyle changes/lack of to make sure they know its unexplained.
