Blood, sweat, and tears... many, many tears

I'm feeling pretty down right now. In August I started the "couch to 5k" running program because I decided to sign up for a color run. I was obviously being held at gunpoint because I don't run. Ever. In fact, I despise cardio in general. But I got a friend to sign up with me and figured that was a great goal / deadline for sticking to the program.
Fast forward to now. I'm in the middle of week 6, and have stuck with the 3 day/week schedule. I'm just not progressing past the week 2 regimen. And it's discouraging. And I haven't lost any weight. None. Mega discouraging.
So as I failed to complete the week 3 regimen once again I got mad. And cried. Right there on the treadmill (which thankfully is in the privacy of my home). I don't know what to do. I don't know what I'm doing wrong or right or what I should change if anything.
I guess it's time for beast mode cowboy eating. Meaning, I need to find the plan that worked for me last year (did I mention I gained back 10 of the 20 pounds I had lost?).
I'm so discouraged by the thought of this struggle my entire life. If I don't eat perfect and exercise like crazy will I keep putting weight back on? Forever? :(
