weight is such an arbitrary figure... you can stand up two people who weigh the same and see two extremely different bodies. weight should really only be used to determine other measurements (for example, estimating LBM or BF%, etc.), not as a stand-alone, with the exception of course of weight-class sports and gross weight loss situations (e.g. 25+ lbs or so). If you've lost 9 inches, that's HUGE--who cares about the weight?
