If you're losing inches, you're doing great! Take that as your measurement. If you've been unfit and are now exercising and gaining tone/muscle, this is heavier than fat and your scale numbers won't plunge so fast. BUT you'll be getting a far firmer stronger body underneath, and be in much better shape! And having more muscle means you can move your body around more easily, get fitter faster etc. So it's a virtuous circle, even though the scales don't always show it immediately.
If this plateau continues for a while, you might try changing up your exercise. Our bodies can get used to things - we need to keep them on their toes!
Good luck and keep on at it!
