I am somewhat opposed to time-based goals, though I did have them. I found myself too often falling into a trap of "I will lost 10 lbs in 10 weeks", losing only 8 lbs, and then feeling like a failure...when in reality, I ROCKED it and lost 8 whole lbs! So I stopped putting deadlines on myself and just gave myself numbers to work toward. You can give yourself a 5 lb mini goal, for example, and just focus on getting that done. Afterward, set another mini goal.
If you do put a timeline on your goals, remember to be realistic (1/2 to 1 lb a week for someone with your BMI might be all your body will give you) and to congratulate yourself for any progress toward the goal when the time comes, not just if you meet it.
