1lb of Muscle vs. 1lb of Fat 
One pound of muscle will burn ~10 kcal per day. 
The pound of fat will burn ~3 kcal per day. 
Weight is a poor measurement of fat loss, for obvious reasons. 
So, you lost a pound? That’s a pretty big deal.
Lift heavy stuff and eat enough and you’ll build more muscle which will allow you to burn more fat and get the look of muscular definition that you desire.
Starving yourself and doing cardio for fat loss are a sure fire way to keep your muscles from growing properly and never reaching your full potential. Go lift weights.
If you want to track your progress accurately then you should use some sort of journal to log your body’s measurements and strength changes or take progress pictures on a regular basis.
Stay off the scale.
