Like you I have had my own regressions. I went from a low of 223 back to 240 before I again woke up. I have come to the realization that I need to change my attitude toward food. I have choosen to take the approach that I can eat anything I want but I can't eat in the quantities that I used to. I still eat birthday cake and ice cream at family dinners but only a small (or least smaller) quantity than I previously did. That way I don't feel like I have missed out on anything. I know I need to work out, not just for weight loss but also because I feel better and sleep better when I do.

You've done it before you can do it again. With a realization that you can't ever go back to just following your old habits when it comes to food your efforts can be permanent. The womens section has a weekly motivational thread (I lurk there, although I would be welcome) where you can be accountable and a part of a bigger support group.
