The body can naturally fluctuate by several pounds from day to day, due mainly to changes in hydration levels.
So it is not worth paying too much attention to any one weigh-in - look instead at the longer term trend.
Also, it is a common response to starting/increasing your workout for your muscles to retain water. This 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. The tape is actually a much better means 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.
