Maybe you're putting on muscle? Muscle weighs more than fat so it could be that you're losing the fat but you just can't see the benefits on the scales because of muscle gain. But this is good! Try taking chest, waist and hip measurements then retake and compare them in a few weeks. You're probably losing weight!

Do you feel any different? Are your clothes fitting you any differently?

It's only one pound! My weight goes up and down by 3 lbs through a whole day! You went from 0 exercise to a LOT of exercise--exercise makes you retain water! Drink lots of water per day, through the whole day. If you work out 5 days per week, weigh yourself on the morning AFTER one of your days that you don't exercise.
