Well, considering I weighed 235 once, this isn't the worst news. Of course I also weighed 178 for about two day two years ago

This is doable. I regularly weighed 183 - 186 before knee surgery and the consequent letting myself go. My advisor recommended cardio 3 times a week, weight work twice... I'm much more likely to do cardio 5-6 days a week. It just seems like the natural thing to do since I go directly after work. I know that if I come home and sit on the couch I'll be bored and wondering what to do with myself.
Long Term (one year+) Goals

I always (potentially) saw myself at 170 the first time around, so this goal is reasonable... there are some picture of me at 180 where I look sorta sickly, actually, but I think that had more to do with a haircut and bad clothing choices. Anyway. At 178 I still had more weight around my midsection than a guy wearing bike jerseys on a regular basis should have. So.
My goals walking in the door were to lose the weight I had regained, improve my cycling, and find a team to ride with. I've yet to call the number of the coach he gave me, mainly because I'm a little nervous about the whole "am I ready for this" thing. I know riding with a team is going to kick my ass. I'm more concerned that I'm either not going to find a team, or I'm not ready. I'm certainly not ready now, but I can be in a couple months.
I should call tomorrow regardless. Stay tuned...
