A Week Working Out

Sup guys, it's been a week now since I first started working out. Soreness is gone, thank god. The first 2 work outs were hell for soreness, but now I barely feel it. I've gone to the gym four times now, and I no longer dread doing so! Which is actually a very good thing. Just some stats:
Weight - Beginning: 45lbs, As Of 9/20: 65lbs
Weight- Beginning: 45lbs, As Of 9/18: 65lbs
Reps- Beginning: 5, As of 9/18: 6
Reps- Beginning and As of 9/18: 2
Weight- Beginning: 45lbs, As of 9/20: 45lbs
Weight- Beginning: 45lbs, As of 9/20: 95lbs
Reps- Beginning and As of 9/20: 0
As of 9/20: 166 lbs
I'm a little upset I can't do a single pull up. I've tried but they seem to be entirely impossible to me. I need to find out if they have rubber bands I can use. Weight for bar bell exercises have gone up on most of them, except for Overhead Press primarily as a concern for my safety. I've felt like I've almost dropped it on myself a couple times, and any heavier than an empty bar (which is 45lbs) I think I might do lasting damage. I'll wait until I feel entirely comfortable with 45lbs. Other than that, the experience so far hasn't been too bad. Saturday's workout was interrupted by an emotional phone call, but I tried to finish it up in my dorm room.
I haven't really noticed any difference yet in anyway. Physically or otherwise, but it's only been a week so I should give it some time. Here's my week update photo next to the one taken last tuesday:
Left is last week, right is this week.
