I echo all welcome aboard messages. Hardest thing about the diet is the crazy schedules everyone lives by. There are great recipes here. I've committed to bringing my lunch with me 5 days a week and limit "eating out" to only once during the work week. This helps me control the calories as well as spend less on food.
Understanding the hectic lifestyle of college etc (not the greatest environments for eating healthy) I would recommend finding a restaurant that has the great healthy options for you and committing to going there or pack some food and bring it with you to work/in the classroom. I understand it's easier said then done but the first step is trying and seeing what resistance there is to having lunch in a break room or in the back of a classroom where you won't interrupt the lectures.
I wish you luck in the journey. It is possible though you may just have to be creative.
