Half a pound is half a pound, Lise! Dig out a tub of margarine that weighs 250g, hold it in your hand, and you'll realize how much you've really lost.
I've reached a point in my life, metabolism and weight loss cycle to know that I can't lose more than a pound a week -- my body rebels the following week with all kinds of symptoms, including fatigue.
Having said all that, if you really want to track how much you can expect to lose per week, there is a Report called Daily Differential. As long as you track your food intake and your cardio output, the report is quite helpful. I use it to help me keep a -500 calorie differential per day. 500 cals x 7 days = 3500 cals = one pound of fat. Although I love seeing a differential around -1000, after 9 years of losing weight, I know my body can't sustain that for very long without affecting my metabolism in the wrong direction.
It's more important to do physical activities and eating sensibly CONSISTENTLY than to overdo it 3 days a week and hope it works out. The consistency is what will make your body change the most.
Friends are like bras -- close to the heart and there for support.
