When you start an exercise plan your muscles will hold on to water temporarily, usually 6-8 weeks. This will cause the scale to appear to either stay the same or go up, which can be majorly disheartening.
Have you been taking measurements? chances are, even if your weight stays the same, you have been losing fat and, therefore, inches. Some gyms will do calipers or have one of those handle held thing-a-muh-jiggers that will tell you your body fat percentage. This can be a better way to measure progress than a number on the scale.
Best of luck, and way to go on the fitness! That is awesome!
