A pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat, it just takes up less space so you can weigh the same and be smaller. Definitely measure yourself to see the changes, I know they are there! It takes time to build muscle, I don't know exactly how long but I know it isn't overnight. Much to my dismay...

Like Thighs & MoonRabbit already said, you are likely retaining water from the muscle exercise. Happens to me every time I make changes to my exercise routine or work out heavy. It will even back out.

Good luck!
