Get Me Thin or Kill Me Trying

I don't need to be thin, or skinny, or even svelte. I'm just sick of being fat. I exercise all the time and my diet is improving every year; it's not good but it's getting better. Here's the thing: I don't care if your advice is bad for my liver or my heart, or anything else, but I need something to kickstart weightloss.

I've tried various amphetamines and speed substitutes, but they never did anything to speed up my metabolism or quell my appetite. If you know of a pill that works, though, I'll try it.
I've tried bulimia, but I was inconsistent because I didn't want anyone to know.
I can't wrap my head around not craving junk food, aside from gradually including more and more vegetables and eating less and less meat.
A few years ago, I got really sick and lost thirty pounds. Working out everyday, I lost ten more pounds in 6 months, and I was the happiest I've ever been. A year and a half later, it was nearly all back. It took my mother thirty years to lose her weight and get happy. I can't stand the cultish groups. I don't have time to hit a gym until after they're all closed. I'm not big enough to be eligible for surgery (215 lbs. at 5'8" as of tonight's weigh in). I don't know what's left.
Again, I really don't care how bad anything is for me. I'm just sick of looking at the mirror.
