No, no problem at all. Anytime you exercise is better than none. The only drawbacks of training after dinner is that you can easily get hungry again before bedtime (effectively giving yourself two dinners), and that some people can't sleep when they train that late. But if that's not happening, no problem.
The weight loss so far is good - 10kg is excellent, so I think you need to take heart from that. The lag that you're seeing in the lower body is normal - we all struggle somewhere, largely because of genes. The answer is just more time and more weight loss. I don't know what your current weight is, but let's say you've still got those 8kg to lose - you may find that 2kg will come from the upper body, the other 6 from the lower body. Also, don't forget that because you're using your legs when training, your muscle mass will be going up - give that time, it'll "plateau" and you'll start to see fat mass come down and it'll be noticeable. All in all, you're on the right track, so don't veer off it just yet. Give it another 2 to 3 months, then decide.
As for the dumbells, if you can - some bicep curls, shoulder press, bench press, upright rows (perhaps google these for pictures) will be very helpful at increasing lean mass.
