If you want to move up to higher stakes, we encourage you to do so, once you can beat the low-limit games regularly over an extended period of time (hundreds of hours). Then be sure to read Sklansky and Malmuth's Hold'em Poker for Advanced Players before advancing to the bigger games.
You may be tempted to advance to a bigger game after two or three straight sessions in which you win a lot of money. Note that the swings in poker, particularly the wilder low-limit games, are huge and inevitable. Three straight winning sessions are not a guarantee that you're ready to move up, nor are three straight losing sessions a guarantee that you should give up the game.
Above all, maintain a positive attitude and discipline. Those are the key components of becoming a winning low-limit hold'em player.
