Are you supposed to feel sore after weight lifting?

Usually yes. In the process of weight lifting, you are actually tearing/breaking down muscle tissue. The soreness you feel is related to how much tissue was broken down during your weight lifting session. This soreness can last for a day or two, or as long as a week. It all depends how much you lifted, and how intense your workout was. The old weight lifting saying goes " no pain, no gain", which is referring to the pain you feel after your workout.
