Here are some MyFitnessPal testimonials sent to us by Withingers who were nice enough to share their experience (something we really like at Withings!). Have a read. Who knows? You too could boost your self-tracking adventure by syncing your Withings and MFP accounts!
I saw your call for Withingers who use the MyFitnessPal app to share their experience. Interestingly enough yesterday marked my second anniversary of using MyFitnessPal. I have been using it religiously for 730 days.
In May 02, 2011 soon after using MyFitnessPal, I weighed 103.4 kg (228 lbs). By September 17, 2011, I had dropped to 88.5 kg (195 lbs) by only using MyFitnessPal and tracking my calories in take and recording my burned calories.
Around the same time I also started using the Withings app to record my weight. It was only about a year ago I finally managed to save enough to buy myself a Withings smart scale.
After two years I have managed to keep the weight off and pick up cycling as a sport that I enjoy immensely.
By the way in 2002, I used to weight 134 kg (295 lbs). I had given up on being able to lose weight. All I have to say to anyone who want to lose weight is that never give up! Anyone can lose weight but there is no quick fix. Here are some tips:
- Track your weight,
- Track you calorie intake,
- Track your calorie expenditure.
Today my weight control strategy hinges around the MyFitnessPal app, the Withings smart scale. I was introduced to Withings via MyFitnessPal.

I’ve been using MyFitnessPal off and on for a few years. I have just gotten serious about it and am tracking a mainly paleo diet. I use my Withings scale and am tracking weight and fat loss everyday!
I love the pairing of the two apps. I just wish my Withings app would take activity information from MyFitnessPal.
Also, maybe an activity/sleep tracker that doesn’t have a monthly/yearly cost. I was using BodyMedia, but it didn’t seem worth the subscription price for a glorified pedometer.
Anyway, I have lost 20lbs in 3 weeks and the scale reads a lower number everyday! I know my weight loss will slow down once my body gets used to the diet, but I love seeing this on a graph on Withings and MyFitnessPal!
Thank you for an awesome product!

I do indeed and using Withings with MyFitnessPal, RunKeeper and BodyMedia has really helped get control of my exercise and food intake. I write down everything that I eat and it helps me make much better choices about the types of foods I choose, since it provides so much detail on what I eat. It probably helps that I am a gadget freak. I am a quarter of the way I need to be in terms of weight and fitness but worlds better than I was on February 1 of this year.

I started using MyFitnessPal to track my calories at the beginning of this year. I was tracking my weightloss obsessively as I was trying to drop about 30-40 pounds in 6 months for my wedding this June. While I weighed in on my old school scale every day I only liked updating MFP once a week so I could see dramatic drops from week to week.
