Thanks Nelie!! No worries, I will not see myself as a failure. I know I will loose a lot of weight in my first week (I slipped up the last few weeks and I am only 1 lb away from my starting goal).
I agree with you that I will probably not get to 35 lbs - but I needed to set my ticker. I didn't want to put my ticker so low that I go into a 'negative' if I loose a lot of weight.
The challange is actually not to get to 35lbs, but to stick to my plan, exercise a lot and then see how much I can loose. I hope it will be in the 30s, but if it isn't - I will be okay with whatever the loss is.
