weighing in..WTF???

So the other day I was encouraged to see 163.4 on the scale when I got up in the morning. I was at 174 lbs (which is my heaviest ever being 5'9").

So two or three days later after my daily swim I weighed in today at 165.4!!! I'm like WTF!!!! Other than maybe a pizza lastnight I've been pretty good with swimming everyday along with weights and eating a chicken sandwhich for lunch and chicken again for dinner along with oatmeal and banana for breakfast.

Where did these 2 lbs come from!! Needless to say I was depressed

Your diet can make you hold water like crazy. Even when I'm eating the same thing everyday, I'll still vary a pound or two. If I was eating whatever I felt like whenever I felt like, I'm sure I'd vary a LOT.

Why be depressed? Don't worry about it. Throw out your scale. Use a mirror to determine if your diet is working for you.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

When is the best time to weigh in? I usually find when I first get up I'm at my lightest....

So my routine is swimming laps for about 30-45 mins at least 4 -5 times a week. Then mixing in some free weights during the week along with another 20-30 mins of x-country skier cardio if I'm up to it.

Breakfast:
Oatmeal + Banana every morning

Lunch:
Subway sandwhich ham + cheese with light dijon

Dinner after my swim and or weights:
Persian chicken kabob in a pita bread

I wanna get down to 155 by the end of September, and down to 150 by mid October...I don't think it's unreasonable...right?

If you weight yourself in the morning you won't be retaining as much water/food from the day, so you'll get a raw weight for the most part. If you want to lose weight, you are going to need to eat more. Mix in some small meals in between your regular meals. Get some fruits, nuts, and some more protein. Subway sandwich? eh, processed meat and the bread is so-so unless maybe you get whole wheat, but who knows how good their whole wheat is.

Crank up your swimming a bit. Either work out for a longer period of time or increase the intensity of the workout. We have different goals in the pool for sure (you and I), but I always make sure I'm a bit sore before I climb out of the water. I suspect that an intense hour long swim workout will burn 800+ calories, but cruising leisurely back and forth is not going to reap the same benefits. If you want some ideas for creating some intensity that you can monitor let me know.

Actually I do a warm up of 10 laps non-stop, then I switch off with sprint laps then normal swimming laps.

I'm huffin and puffin pretty hard by the time I get out of the pool.....

My weight fluctuates dramatically from day to day, I just know I am becoming tighter and more "fit" looking.
