With your diet, start making some small changes. Don't bother changing everything at once, it won't last if you try that. Just make some substitutions. At the moment you're eating a relatively large amount of takeaways - try making your own at home so you can control what's in it and make some healthier options (e.g. lean mince and veg patties on a wholemeal bun with piles of salad, or a 'pizza' made on a pita bread base with stacks of veges and a light sprinkle of cheese). Even just start by cutting down the portions of the same food (I love food so I was always more inclined to change the food so I could eat more of the healthier option than less of the unhealthier option).
After a while of getting used to that, make another change... etc.
