It depends. I would not focus on what the scale says, rather on what weight you have on the bar and set goals for that in 3 months. As a raw beginner, you can add alot to your bench/squat and deadlift in that time. If you get stronger, you will get bigger, especially as a beginner you can se great results the first year and also build a good base.
