Body fat scales and handheld devices are notoriously inaccurate - they basically complete a current the fastest way possible, so a scale won't measure the top half of your body, and a handheld will just do your arms and chest. So your "body fat scale" is kind of more of a "leg fat scale" - you're not doing anything wrong, the device just isn't capable of measuring you more completely. I carry most of my excess fat in my thighs and butt, so even as the pounds have dropped I still show an improbably high BF% on my scale.
To get a better idea of how much body fat you actually have, a caliper test is far more accurate (assuming the person giving it knows what they're doing, of course!)
Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.
