feeling stuck-I am going to gain weight!

I am 20 years old, weigh around 130 ibs, exercise pretty much every day for an hour, and eat around 1200 calories. I feel extremely stuck because I want to be eating more normal amounts and not exercising so much but I feel that if i don't do this that I am going to gain weight, which is what i am terrified of. I want to live a normal life thats not so restrictive and based on exercise. I dont want to live this way forever and I am afraid that as I get older I am going to have to eat even less and exercise more just to have a body that i am remotely comfortable with. At this height, i would be okay with a weight between 125 and 135. I have been up to 145 at my heaviest and was extremely uncomfortable. Help!
