2frus just said it all!
You are in better physical shape with lower % body fat than you were before. Celebrate yourself!
When most of us say we want to lose weight, we mean we want to lose body fat. But the scale we use measures it all: bone, muscle, fat, water, etc. It's really a poor tool for the job, when you think about it.
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that much of the research on risk factors and obesity actually involves % body fat. If I'm right, that means reducing body fat has also put you at less risk of disease, as well as made you stronger AND more able to burn calories! Win-win-win!
