I hear what you say and can understand that you are desperate. I wonder if you have ever come to terms with the loss of your dear Father? I somehow don't think so. I would recommend that you consult a clinical psychologist to discuss your loss, your reactions to the loss which you say included rebellion and possibly increased eating, and also your panic attacks and anxiety. Please mention that you are taking Azor as I see in my copy of MIMS that Azor can cause insomnia and "inhibition of psychological adjustment in bereavement". The psychologist will have to evaluate which psychological factors are driving you to overeat and which are sapping your motivation and help you to come to terms with your loss in a less destructive fashion. Once you are in better control of your emotional reactions you know full well what steps to take to lose weight seeing that you managed to lose 27,2 kg before. To achieve a nice balanced BMI of 24, you need to weigh 65 kg, which entails a loss of 15 kg - only about half of what you lost previously, so it should be attainable.
Please do continue with your swimming as this is an excellent aerobic exercise that you can use to stimulate your metabolism and help you to lose weight, but keep in mind that it takes time.
Holding thumbs that you will consult a psychologist and sort out the factors that hamper you from moving forward.
