A pound of muscle weights exactly the same as a pound of fat. But since muscles are dense and compact, it may seem that by having more in your body you are becoming heavier. In fact, you may gain weight when you start working out once you start putting on more muscle, but you'll probably notice that your clothes fit better and you feel slimmer, since muscle takes up less space than fat in your body.
