My first goal is to score high in google on weight loss program. I believe i can.
First of all just make sure that your research is spot-on so you know what you're going into. Instead of targeting this keyword as your "first goal", why not try targeting some longer tail search terms and get ranking well for those as your first goal? You'll be able to see results for these much faster, and ranking well for these will help your rankings for the bigger search terms.
Of course never lose sight of what your main targets are, but think of it as swooping around and taking them from the back instead of attacking them head-on.
Where are you going to get all your backlinks from? If you have a good plan, then it won't be impossible, but if you are pretty inexperienced getting backlinks, then you're going to be in trouble.
This is a slightly two-dimensional view. Not all backlinks need to be begged, bought or bartered. If you work on doing things right, creating a really good site with good content, maybe even a community component (it's the concept of the moment), keep your SEO in mind, and give it some time, you will start to receive links. If you can be more creative with your marketing efforts then you will also be rewarded. Don't be put off in this early stage by the intimidating prospect of needing to find 900 backlinks.
Glad to hear your daughter is doing well, let us know how you get on,
