    errm you wont really lose weight, your muscles will get stronger but if you want to lose weight, you also need to diet and extrasize more =]

    From other websites, swimming tends to burn 500-600 calories per hour depending upon how strenuous you’re swimming (hard paced laps vs casual swimming).

    In addition, you will lose calories through thermal loss as water is 24 times more conductive than air. I.e. your body wants to be at approx 37C but the water is 20-24C so heat transfers from your body to the water. Your body then burns additional calories to keep closer to 37C.

    Regardless, swimming is a great exercise. If you concentrate on improving your technique rather than just forcing your self to do laps, you’ll enjoy it more too. Take a look for “Total Immersion” as it explains the best ways to improve your swimming technique.

    Good luck!
