I keep dieting for 2 weeks then having a week of eating badly then repeating.

I know how to lose fat but it’s hard and I lack discipline.

I originally was 25% body fat but got down to 15%

What can I do?

Don't diet and don't eat badly instead try to find an overall diet and exercise that you can sustain indefinately (at least until you get old or broken). Try to cut down on the "bad" things 1 bad thing at a time - it's ok to have an occasional "bad" thing just try not to let it become a daily thing.

are you a girl or a guy? if youre a girl, i think its really really difficult to go below 15% (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

if youre trying to slim down more to have a more toned looking figure, try lifting weights if you dont do so already (this is super patronising if you already do haha)

Below 17-20% for females depending on your source and 10% for males. A 15% female is getting ready for a show/photo shoot/competition of sorts.

15% is reasonably low and you will be healthy where you are. Accept yourself and be happy. You are by no means in need of losing any more

It does matter, that's why you have to count your macronutrients. Ratio of protein, carbs and fat. Google it

Your body weight probably went down which meant you need to further decrease calorie intake because a smaller BW means less calories. Bodybuilders drop calories bit by bit before shows.
