You have come to the right place. This is not just about dieting, it is about life style change and finding support from positive people. Check out the Fitness Tracker and Nutrition Tracker features. These are powerful tools to help you get on track and stay on track. Try blogging, too. It is amazing the support you get from others who are struggling with similar issues or who have overcome them.
Jump in, join some teams, and be kind to yourself. Change doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.

A scary journey lol... it's just a journey, it's a life style. And I have found that when I am more active on the boards and offering support to others I am more active in my own my own journey and making good choices and staying on track. Everyone has bad spots, but I look at them as speed bumps (when I may be doing more than I healthfully should). Set your goals to be reasonable and do this the healthful way, with reasonable goals and as you don't want to go back to the yo-yo effect. Make the changes changes that you will be able to live with for the rest of your life.
