When you start/increase an exercise program, it is a common response for your muscles to retain water. It takes 3 water molecules to bond to each glycogen molecule, and this helps deliver energy to your muscles more efficiently, and helps them cope better with the new demands you are making of them.
In the short term, this increase in your lean mass can lead to little change (or even an increase) in the scale, even as you are burning fat.
However, muscle and water are considerably denser than fat, and typically this shows up as inches lost, even if the scale is being unco-operative. You say your clothes are fitting better? Well, this means you ARE burning fat, regardless of what the scale says. Don't do anything different - it sounds like the only problem is the measurement system. The tape is often a much better way of tracking your progress than the scale.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
