Im losing about a pound every two days. And I just tweeked my eating just a bit and walk 30 minutes 3 times a week at the mall. Free Calorie Counter, Diet & Exercise Journal | MyFitnessPal.com
I've got that App too, and if you go online with your pc, there is an area somewhat like a social network where you can make "friends" with other people so that you can encourage each other, etc. When you have a "bad" day and eat junk, you can vent to people who understand. I have not found a single person on there who is mean or rude, only supportive people.
The problem I wasn't losing weight is that I wasn't eating enough and I was putting my body in "starvation mode." I struggle to eat the amount of calories it tells me to, but when I do, actually LOSE. Part of the key to keeping the calories down is to not consume the empty ones like Soda, candy, etc. When you make them count with whole grains, and "real" food, your body is more satisfied and doesn't require as much.
