Treat myself?

Hi guys,
I'm a 21 year old female who has struggled with my diet since about the beginning of high school. I'm 5'11, at about 145 lbs. with an athletic build. However, I am constantly worrying about my body image. I've had digestive trouble in the past, we tested for gluten allergies, lactose allergies, Celiac's, etc. and all came up negative. After a colonoscopy, the doctors diagnosed IBS- but I'm still completely unsure of what to eat without getting sick to my stomach. On top of my digestive issues, I am constantly worried about gaining weight. As a side note- I work at horse training facility where I clean about 30 stalls and take care of the horses in each. Just as an estimate, it might burn about 1500-1800 calories per morning and the barn is heated, so I definitely sweat! Sometimes I want to treat myself by going out to eat or getting an ice-cream cone here and there. My question is, am I completely over thinking things? Is it ok for me to go out to eat sometimes or snack on junk food here and there? It might sound completely ridiculous, but this is a serious struggle for me, to the point where I'll skip several meals if I decide to indulge in these things. Does anyone out there struggle with the same issues??
Thanks a bunch
