I've worked really hard the last few months at the gym, and now I'm worrying about losing all i've worked hard for. i have dumbbells at home, but they aren't very heavy. i'm trying to do 100+ press ups every day but not sure whether this will do anything. any other exercises? i'm worried i won't be eating enough to keep my weight or have enough protein

Try inverted rows with a table, bodyweight squats, lying leg raises, etc.

All of that is calisthenics

For the dumbbells, you can do bent-over rows, goblet squats, chest presses and weighted sit-ups

If you have naturally gained that muscle and you're eating really well you'll be surprised how hard it is to lose the muscle that you've built, the strength and technique on certain exercises though is another thing entirely but you will bounce back on that too. So just keep doing something you'll be fine, do more bodybuilding style high rep work and you could gain more
