Weight is not a static number and is really not the best indication of fat loss. Our weight fluctuates usually due to level of hydration since our bodies mostly consist of fluid. That's why weekly weigh-ins are generally recommended over daily weigh-ins, to see a trend. I can step on my scale 3 times in a row and get a slightly different decimal point depending on how I stand. It's so fickle. A couple of weeks ago, I lost 5 lbs in a day.. it certainly wasn't fat loss because I hadn't created -17 500 cal deficit in 24 hours. I have also had times where I only lost about 1 lb over 2 weeks but lost a crazy amount of noticeable fat and suddenly had a 6 pack.
Don't put much stake in the scale, especially over a few decimal points because it can just as easily bend the other way, not in your favour.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
