Working out burning more than I eat but still gaining......?

I just started working out 1 week ago, I am burning more calories than I am eating. I eat as much as I can a day but not meeting what they say I need to eat per day but I get close. But I have steadily been gaining weight! I don't feel heavier. Before I started working out I was eating way less than I should... show more I just started working out 1 week ago, I am burning more calories than I am eating. I eat as much as I can a day but not meeting what they say I need to eat per day but I get close. But I have steadily been gaining weight! I don't feel heavier. Before I started working out I was eating way less than I should have been which I guess isn't good. So does my body still have to acclimate to my eating more and working out and then I will start to lose weight? Thanks!
BTW I am 59 weigh 139 I'm 5'9" very healthy, wanting to lose 8 - 10 lbs
