I've lost 5 pounds in 3 weeks.
That is a great app. I used it to log my food and keep track of my calories last year, and lost 35 lbs nice and slow, over about 7 months. Mainly it helped me learn where most empty calories hide and how much is a proper portion. Although I tried to stay around 1200 calories a day, I was more concerned with eating more "real food " and less processed junk. Using that as a guideline made it more sustainable for me. My weight has since levelled off about 10 lbs heavier than that initial loss so I had a net loss of about 25 lbs which seems to be a good weight for me. Highly recommend MyFitnessPal!
