Default lift or not to lift that is my question

lift or not to lift is my question
would it be best to lose weight first by doing arobics & then start lifting weights. So I can tell how big my musals are getting?

or is it best to start doing both from the start?


I want to lose alot of size.
currently in a 13-14 -- XL
My goal is a size 7-8 -- M to S

I want to be firm. but DON'T want to gain size.

specially in my inner thighs or calfs

Which is the best way??????????

I will admit that I am a bit biased, I love lifting weights. I have over 100 lbs to lose and it is my choice of exercise. Building muscle (and you can build muscle without building mass) increases your metabolism and it in general is great exercise if done properly. Also, it is easy to lose muscle if you decide you do happen to become bulkier than you wanted to be.
