Sounds realistic, maybe even pessimistic. I lost like 90 pounds in about a year, so I suspect you can get to your goal before 2013.

I hear you, maintenance is almost harder than losing and it goes on forever...

Default unrealistic goals

Many people have unrealistic goals in terms of the amount of weight they would like to lose. A short-term weight loss goal will only be helpful if it leads to long-term goals such as keeping the weight off. The habits that will help keep the weight off are the same ones that helped to lose the weight. The best goal in my mind is to improve health.
