I am a mother of three and 230 pounds and eat 1400+ (I aim for at least 1500) and have had great success losing weight.  Also I do 25 minutes of workout s day but if I decide to add in a run as well I will eat a Lara bar or pb on a banana.  Need to make sure you are eating enough.  The app should give you a goal number of calories to eat.  Try dropping it by about 300 calories, no more.  Also sounds like you are doing a lot hopefully you aren't overdoing your workouts eat day.  Make sure you allow your body to recover from your workouts.  When I started I would run in the morning and do my T25 in the evening. I was waking up in cold sweats and dizzy the next day every time I did that.  So I started doing them one after another if I was going to do both and started have the snack as well for the second workout and I haven't had that problem since.  Good luck!

That seems a little low calorie wise. I don't think it's healthy to go below 1300c because you send your body into starvation mode.
