I'm not 100% sure what you're asking? Is yours the last question? Why is the previous question and my reply part of the question? And it seems to be addressed to Dietdoc? I'll answer that last part, hopefully that's what you meant.
Your lack of weight loss is not a problem, as my previous answer suggested - it often happens that people don't lose weight on the scale even though they are getting fitter and leaner and more muscular. The fact that your muscles feel firmer is a sign that it is making an impact.
The problem about fat around the muscles is something that just takes time to work through. I don't know what you are doing in training, but you might need to increase the intensity of the training slightly in order to accelerate the weight loss, but that's something that comes with improved fitness. So my advice is that you must focus on fitness and not on the number on the scale. If you get fitter, then the other changes will come in time. But it does take longer. You've achieved the first step, which is increased lean muscle mass. The next step is to burn fat and that comes later and with fitness.
Also, diet is important and I'm not sure what you're doing here. It would be very good if you can see a dietician and make sure that you are eating well, not too little, not too much, and that your training is not being undone by a few diet 'errors'.
