Default Gaining muscle weight? When will scale go down?

I've been doing some resistance band training in some of my workouts but last week I added 10lb weight reps. I saw a dramatic slow to my weight loss. I only lost 0.5oz this last week. Assuming I am losing fat and gaining muscle, when is it typical to start seeing the scale go down again? or does it very by person and exercise?

Mine never did once I hit about 170. It just hovered around the same and I just got slowly more ripped. If you want to lose, eat less (might be hard to do) or up the cardio but your muscle gains will also suffer.

At your height/weight I would expect you have a few more pounds to drop before this becomes a big issue. I would expect you to see some losses again soon.

Are you also doing cardio? I've found that I have to do cardio and weights, though I do weights more than cardio. In addition, I had to adjust my caloric intake.

It could just take time. I have a tendency to get "stuck" for a month or two without seeing any weight drop.... argh... that is when it is hard to stay on target. Then I will drop 4 or 5 pounds in a week or two... then stuck again. I think it does vary with different people. Keep up the good work!
