Default Weightloss slowed after starting weight train?

Ok, I've heard that muscle weighs more than fat and that weight training also builds muscle density. I've lost 47 pounds in 5 months. In the last month I've only lost 1 pound. This just so happens to be about when I added hills to my walk and weights. However, my clothes are looser, and every person I see comments on my continued weight loss. I didn't take measurements before, and I wish I had so i could have more objective ways of measuring my results....BUT...is it possible that the slowed weight loss is due to muscle gain?

It might be part of the reason. The average woman can gain about 0.25 lb of muscle per week, or slightly faster if you're new to weightlifting.
