It will make your muscles bigger which will seem to make your parts bigger, but it doesn't make your arms or legs or anything else grow. Your parts will probably become bigger around if measured, but that's muscle growth. it can make muscles larger and bones stronger. If you are worried about looking fatter don't. If you want larger breasts wont work.

Weight training alone does not make your body parts bigger. To get bigger, you must eat above your maintenance calories. Muscles do not grow out of thin air. You must feed the body what it needs to support your weight training. If you don't feed it enough calories, then you will never grow.

Can strength training increase body weight?

Yes, but it can also decrease body weight. Strength training itself doesn't alter the mass of your body. However, you will need to eat and drink plenty of water in order to continue strength training (and living, actually), and that will add to your body weight. Sweating and using the bathroom will decrease your body weight. The benefit of strength training is that more of the weight on your body will be lean, which means that it will contribute more to your strength and other aspects of fitness.

Should you do cardio after weight training?

There is no one way to train that works for everyone. Congratulations on doing both cardio and weight training! An excellent combination. Your body has a limited ability to recover from exercise. What you do when you train (either by lifting weights or doing cardio) is catabolic, which means that it breaks your body down. This is why it is essential to give your body good nutrition as well as sufficient rest and recovery. Doing so will enable your body to rebuild itself better than it was before training; this process is anabolic. You need the balance of catabolic and anabolic.Cardio will affect your weight training, and your weight training will affect your cardio. Experiment and see what works best for you. One way to combine them is to do your cardio after weight training. Here is a better way: do your cardio before breakfast but on days when you do weight training do cardio in the afternoon. That is the way many fitness models and bodybuilders do it, and it has many advantages.

Can you lose weight just weight training?

It's possible but unlikely. To use up an important amount of calories(which will help with weight loss) you need to get your heart rate up and keep it up for some time. And weight training just isn't hard or consistent enough work in that way. Weight training is usually for bulking up (gaining muscle), but yes.. you can lose FAT weight.. but gain MUSCLE weight (muscle weighs more than fat). You can lower your body composition via weight training (lower body comp is good). It's hard to explain, but you can lose fat and still gain weight by weight training is what I'm trying to say.
