How can we recover the network state at iteration T

I am using a validation set to determine stop training when the validation loss stops decreasing. I have my validation patience as 3. Assuming that my networks stops training when it has surpassed this patience threshold, during the final 3 validation steps of my network would have been overfitting.
As a result, I want to recover the network state at the step that produced the minimum validation loss. Is there a way to do this?

Hi Roberto,
I also have the same problem. Did you find a solution yet? If so, I am very interested how you solved the problem!

In the distant past I'm pretty sure that I have checked, by using the error plot, that it is done automatically.
Thank you for formally accepting this answer

I have not verified this but I have the feeling that, in the long run, the difference between stopping at minval and minval + 6 for 15% of the data is not significant w.r.t. performance on the entire dataset.
