Be sure your program is set up accurately for your goals but also the amount of exercise you are doing. If so, the range should be correct. Aim for the lower end of the range on non-workout or light workout days and the upper end on heavier cardio days.
It's true that many people either gain a little weight or don't see any change on the scale for as long as 4-6 weeks after making a significant change in their level of exercise. This is often explained as "gaining muscle while losing fat" but that isn't quite accurate. This extra weight is usually water.
When you start doing more exercise, your body begins storing more fuel in your muscle cells, where it can be used easily and quickly to fuel your workouts. The process of converting glucose (carbohydrates) into fuel that your muscles actually store and use (glycogen) requires three molecules of water for every molecule of glucose. As your muscles are building up glycogen stores, your body has to retain extra water for this purpose. That's what causes most of the initial weight gain or lack of weight loss. This is a good thing—not something to worry about.
Keep on keeping on...
"Losing weight is not a goal; it is a result."
"Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second and maybe not the third. Keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally, you will hit the bull's eye of success." Darke County Ohio native Annie Oakley's Motto
