I agree with Motivated_Last.
Eating too little, exercising too much and not including strength training is a recipe for lean muscle loss over fat loss. Not to mention, as you've already experienced... throwing in the towel because quite frankly, you were "dieting", not creating sustainable changes to your life. Healthy living is not a sprint, it's a marathon. Treat it as such and you will be successful, not only in losing those unhealthy pounds but in keeping them off.
Try not to look at it as just getting the pounds off this time and instead look at it as improving yourself, not only your weight/appearance but improving your entire lifestyle. Treat this journey how you plan on living for the rest of your life. Set new goals for yourself in your diet, fitness, health and all over, life and if you keep challenging yourself to the next level, in a years time you will see so much self-improvement it will blow your mind.

All that matters is that you be the healthiest you, you ca
