Deadlift weight to bodyweight ratio?

I haven't done deadlifts in a long time. Tomorrow, I am going to do attempt them as part of my core workout.
I have been looking at Rippetoe videos on Youtube getting my form down. My question is: What weight should I target to achieve? I know I will start light but what's a reasonable goal in a few workouts?
According to this site
, the following standards apply to a 132lb male:
I know there aren't any other 130lbs lifters on this board
but what worked for you when you started deadlifting? I am going to start with 135lbs and go from there. What do you guys think?
