Good job. Losing 9 kilos of weight is not easy. What you lose and gain in weight is a direct function of the calories you eat and you burn. You must eat less or burn more to lose weight. Estimates of muscle and fat mass are not very accurate with most devices or equations. I would focus on BMI for health. Healthiest BMI for women is under 25. At this BMI women tend to live longer & healthier.
