OK I figured out how to CMD-S at startup to get into Single User Mode...

then I can type fsck -y

it tells me everything is OK...

but then what? how do I boot into OS X with force restarting?

Thanks in advance :)

You have a couple of options here. First, when you're in X, type man shutdown to find out about how to use shutdown. The 2 basic commands you need are:
shutdown -h now
** this will shutdown.
shutdown -r now
** this will restart.

Or, if you don't want to restart (like if you've run fsck -y a few times until your disk comes up clean and you just want to go to X) type logout and the multiuser boot will continue.
