Honestly, i think you would be better off lifting hard and often on a deficit if you think you have fat to lose. You will gain/keep strength and even build in areas while burning because of the weight you are at. If you dont like cardio, don't bother. Just go back into a deficit and keep aiming to up your weights you are lifting, the body changes will come sooner than you think. Ignore the scales or only check them once every one or two weeks.
