In brief: Weight loss

Start with your primary care doctor, who will evaluate you and may order a lab panel.
He or she may also refer you to a nutritionist or other specialist based on your workup.

Since 2 hours 5x a week is quite a lot of exercise and 1800 calories may or may not be enough for your body I would discuss with doctor or nutritionist

In brief: Medical weight loss

I would recommend doing a medically supervised weight loss program.
Most weight loss clinics can help tell your body composition and resting metabolism rate which will help guide you how much to eat, what foods are best and check lab work if necessary. Eat 500cal/day to help lose more weight.
