Unhappy with my body, unable to focus on anything else...

Hi. I've recently started hating my body, it's really dragging my mental health down. My weight has always fluctuated from being a small child, my dad nicknamed me 'big legs' for the first 12 years of my life. Once I started secondary school I lost a substantial amount of weight, that was probably the healthiest I had ever been. I felt so good in myself being much smaller, so decided to unhealthily start starving myself to become the smallest I could. My parents caught on to what I was doing and helped me through it to get me back up to a normal weight. Long story short, after a few years I recently found myself overeating junk food like I did when I was a child. It's so hard to find balance, yet I'm motivated that I can be a healthy weight. Could someone please help me find a sustainable way of losing this weight I put on and any tips that will stop me from fall back into those unhealthy eating patterns?
Thank you
