Men tend to have less problem with losing weight and 'seeing' success than women do, so just as you shouldn't compare between one woman and another, don't compare with your husband. I know it can be off-putting, but instead rejoice in his success.
There are a number of factors that could be at play.
Are you eating enough for the increased exercise?
Odds are you are retaining fluid while building muscle. This takes up space and added weight, but it does tend to reverse after a wee while.
Do you have TOM issues? Even for me, 2-3 years after menopause, I continued to have the hormone swings causing bloating.
What weight/height are you? Some people feel they NEED to lose weight, but their body doesn't really need to - it is already at a good weight for it. If you still "NEED" to lose some, if you are fairly close to your body's best weight, it will get much harder to lose.
Now for a little story about ME!
My Dietitian has kinda almost given up measuring my waist. I have lost quite a bit, but in that time have only lost a couple cm off my waist. BUT I have gone from wearing a NZ sizse 20-22 to a 12-14 top and 14-16 bottom. THAT is success :-) I have lost size in my wrists, my face, across my shoulders, my feet and a little in my legs. Obviously I have lost in my torso, but altho' the tape-measure doesn't show it, my clothes do. Must be more room to squish around inside - LOL!
Regardless of whether you lose weight or not, good exercise, nutrition and hydration goes hand in hand with doing the best that we can for our health.
