I highly doubt you've been eating 1k calories and not losing weight. You are either tracking incorrectly or not tracking everything you're eating.

What those guys said ^^^

+ eat more! 1000 calories isn't enough for an extremely small child!

How do you input your foods into myfitnesspal? Do you measure the weight of the food? How do you provide quantities into MFP?

Not necessarily. You could scan a food item and have wrong macro/calories listed, you could be weighing foods incorrectly, you could not be accounting for oils used when you cook, you could be simply misreading a label. For example look at the picture below, you could quickly see the contents in the red square scan and add but miss the green square saying ONE pastry is 200kcal.
