I agree with Unident - when you start/increase a workout program, it is a common response for your muscles to retain water. In the short term, this increase in your lean mass can lead to little change in the scale, even as you are burning fat.
However, water and muscle are considerably denser than fat, and typically this shows up as inches lost, even if the scale is being unco-operative. The tape is often a much better means of tracking your progress than the scale.
Also, while higher levels of exercise can require higher levels of intake to support, this is not automatic, and depending on your circumstances, could be sabotaging your efforts. I'd recommend entering your increased level of activity into your Spark Exercise Goals (accessible from the LH side of the Start page), and seeing if Spark then recommends an increased intake.
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.
