Can I import data from another application? I lost 18 lbs and I do not want to lose my history.

I am not sure if there is a simple way but you can go back on your start weight and date and change it. Like if you just started MFP today but you have been working out and eating right since June 1 2011 just put start date as June 1st and what your start weight was. You may even be able to fill in past food data

I know I started this app about a month after I started losing weight. So I changed start date and start weight so I could see all my progress.

I hope this helped sorry if it didnt

To change like your start date weight and stuff go to MY HOME then click CHECK IN then go to the bottom it will say EDIT PREVIOUS ENTRIES

hope this helps more

I'm a programmer, so I just used the export from my previous tracker to get the data in an email, then used Selenium to automate entering it into that page. This is not something for the average user, but there's no way I was going to enter 100+ data points into the form by hand.

It would be a really nice way to welcome new members if they could import at least weight (and measurement) records.

What is Selenium?
I'm just reading this and would also like to import lose it data into My Fitness Pal.

If you don't know what Selenium is then you also won't know how to use it :-)

Its a tool for software developers.
