LOST weight?

So as some may know ive decided to bulk up. Well to bulk you obviously put weight on, and in a week ive lost weight.
About a month ago i tried to lose weight leading up to the bulk and i normally had 1500-2000 calories a day. I stopped recording my weight because i wasnt losing anymore, so on 15/06/09 i was 11 stone 3.8.
This past week ive done:
 
4 day split
only cardio being 10 mins low intensity on exercise bike on wednesday and half hour exercise on saturday
recorded calories average out at 2700 a day
protein averages out at 164 grams a day
 
So i weigh this morning and im once again 11 stone 3.8! Its so weird because i weigh myself every morning and for just under a week i was 11 stone 5.2 all week until this morning. I noticed i was pi$$ing a lot yesterday which suggests its water weight that ive got rid of to make me lighter.
I dunno what to do now. How can someone of 6ft, 160lb and a high bf% need more than 2700 calories a day when i dont exercise much at all? The only thing i can think of is because my metabolism may have kicked in a bit more as i often skipped breakfast before trying to bulk.

    Firstly I would not recommend weighing yourself every day.  This is unnecessary and not accurate, as you have daily fluid fluctuations so the scales are not really portraying the whole truth.  If you must use the scales then minimum once a week.

    In simple terms, if you are not putting any weight on whatsoever then you probably need to eat a bit more. As you say, perhaps your metabolism has been kick started.  2700 daily cals is not a huge amount for an active male who is training also.
