That's not right... for your weight it should be around 1500 cals. I don't know your age or height though. If you are sedentary (you work at a desk job, don't move around much during the day) Spark gives you an extra 300 cals for basic activities (showering, preparing meals, brushing your teeth, walking to your car, errands). So your TDEE (without exercise) would be 1800 cals. If you burn 2000 cals per week through exercise (divide it by 7 to get your average daily burn) approximately 285 cals extra a day. This would give you a TDEE (with exercise) of close to 2300 cals.
This calculator should give you a rough idea:
But if you've entered in your information correctly; have your goal date set to lose 1-2 lbs/week and have entered how many calories you burn per week into your fitness setup Spark should give you a calorie range. Are you using the new tracker where you plug in your activity level; sedentary, lightly active or active?
I don't have all your info but for example; if you are in your 30s, are of average height and exercise intensely 5x a week. Your TDEE would be around 2300 cals and if you subtract 1000-500 cals daily from that number you'd get a range of 1300-1800 cals. That doesn't mean you're on a 1300 cal diet... that means you can eat anywhere in that range and lose weight successfully. If you are not sedentary and relatively active outside of exercise, your range may be higher.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
