Why am I looking thinner but getting heavier?

Over the past couple of months I've been working on getting much healthier and losing weight. On average I've been swimming roughly 1.5km (about 1 mile) every day, and running 6km 3 to 4 times a week. I've been doing some weight training, involving working with dumbbells and doing pushups/sit-ups every day. I've had a very healthy diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and small portions of low fat meals. I've never felt better or healthier in my life, and I think I can see noticeable fat loss in my body. I've met people who I haven't seen in a long time who've mentioned I look very different. However, according to the scales I've become heavier than when I started. To begin with I was about 140 pounds. But now I'm hovering around 146 pounds. Am I doing something wrong? If I look slimmer why aren't I getter lighter?
Just to note I'm a 5 foot 6 inch male, but with a fairly broad and heavy build.
