I made the mistake of beginning a lifting program, before I reached my goal weight of 162.
When I started my lifting program 1 month ago, I weighed 167 and I've since gone up to about 170. I know the scale has gone up due to my lifting program, which I do 3-4 days a week.
My issue is that I feel like I would be seeing better results if I actually got down to 162 like I originally planned (the last time I was 162, I could see the results of my weight lifting much better than I can now).
Should I stop my lifting program (and risk losing the muscle I've gained) so I can get down to my goal weight OR should I just exercise a little patience and continue down the path I'm going to eventually see my desired results at a much slower pace?
