If you have the balance, try doing some stops with just the outside foot and raising your inside foot off the ice. Don't try this at full speed, at least not at first (but, if you go too slow, it's basically impossible). This may help your body to find a comfort zone and enable you to balance, despite leaning away from where your foot is. If you can get the hang of this, or at least sort of get the hang of it, try adding that inside foot near the outside foot to add some extra balance, and some extra stopping power.

Your outside foot will do most of the work, even when you have mastered stopping, so its a good thing that you can do it now anyway.
