My opinion, the scale is pretty meaningless at this stage of the game. Like KJ, I've put on about 25 pounds and my waist and shirt size are the same. I try to excel at three lifts, deadlifts, squat and bench. If I'm losing weight and maintaining or improving my lift numbers, I'm losing fat. If I'm gaining weight and putting more weight on the bar, I'm gaining muscle. If I'm going in the opposite direction, I have to stop and re-evaluate.
