It's quite possible that you are adding lean body mass (muscle) with the exercise. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn, either at rest or during activity.

What made a big difference for me is when I started to make sure I timed my workouts (especially weights) so I could eat a high protein meal or snack with an hour of the exercise. I don't know if that is the case with you, but it really helped me maintain or add to my lean mass even while I was dropping body fat like a bad habit.
