I keep reading that swimming won't help with weight loss?

Is this true?

I recently took up swimming because I wanted to swim an hour every day, in order to lose weight.

Has anyone had success with swimming?

Answer on I keep reading that swimming won't help with weight loss?

I've lost 30 pounds from swimming over the past 3 months. The people who say you won't lose weight from swimming are likely the people who have tried to swim laps once and realized it's much harder at first than the elliptical, treadmill or stationary bike. Fortunately, you build up endurance in the pool very quickly.
