My goal is also to lose 35 lbs. I am 5'6'' and weight 180 (well this morning it was 179.6)
And my goal weight is 145. I would like to lose it all by the fall, but hopefully make great strides before summer gets here! I'm tired of looking terrible in a swimsuit!
BTW, I am also a stay at home mom. I find it so easy to nibble my way to extra lbs. I've really got to strive not to go into the kitchen and eat whenever I get the urge.
