Congratulate yourself on what you have done. Celebrate each victory, it's the little things that add to the big things.
Actually, I think of things like 1/2 lb is two sticks of butter, one lb is four sticks of butter. Can you picture adding/losing all those sticks of butter on/off your body? Whoops, I don't know what you call 1/2 lb in Canada but I think you get my idea.
I love Canada, my Grandmother and Grandfather came from there and I went to a French school in Massachusetts all my life.
My DH and I went to Quebec to celebrate our 30th anniversary and had a wonderful time and I still understood the language.
