It can take as much as 6-8 weeks for your body to adjust to new lifestyle changes and reflect those changes on the scale. Take those bodyfat scales with a grain of salt; they're based on fluid in your body, which can fluctuate wildly with your hydration levels, so they're not terribly accurate.

If you gained weight when starting to exercise due to adding lean mass or water retention/carb storage, how long was it before your weight started to go DOWN?

3 1/2 weeks ago, I went out of town and though I was exercising before, I started marathon training and added in 2 days a week of bodyweight and plyometric resistance training. Even though I've had a calorie deficit of 450/day, I came back to discover I have gained 5-7 lbs.

According to my bodyfat scale it is all water or lean mass and I've lost a bit of fat too (I have felt like I've been retaining water for about a week, not sure why..) My waist measurement is the same to a half inch smaller.

However my goal is WEIGHT loss, for faster running. How long before you started to lose weight?

THANKS!
