Exercise stimulates your appetite, which can lead to some weight gain. Since your purpose is not to lose weight, you needn't worry about it. In the long run, increasing the proportion of muscle in your overall body composition will raise your metabolic rate, which will likely lead to some weight loss - unless your workouts are designed to build muscle mass.
