In coming up with an intake recommendation, Spark takes into account the weekly calories burne in your Exercise Goals. So significantly under-reporting your exercise levels may lead to Spark recommending an intake level to low to support your needs.
I know that pcos can slow weight loss, but I just don't know enough about it to know whether this justifies eating under the recommended range.
But I would always go with making a conscious, informed choice about undereating, rather than not realizing the choice you are making, even if your actual intake is the same in both cases. On this basis, I would recommend entering an accurate number into your Exercise Goals.
And as you yourself say, you may need to work harder. And I think it is more motivating to see your actual 'stretch' goal of 60-70 minutes, rather than a more moderate 45 minute goal.
Also, your post mentions lots of cardio, but doesn't say anything about strength training. Any good exercise program includes BOTH ST and cardio. ST should definitely be part of your program, even if that means cutting some cardio to make room for it.
