Just to be sure that I've got this straight:
You have been doing your daily activities, plus doing a 600 calorie minimum workout every day, and only eating 1700 calories per day for "a while" --- and you are not still losing weight? Wow. I would expect you to still be losing at that range.
The "lightly active" includes your regular daily activities only - with the 600 calorie workout being over and above that. You should be able to eat in the range of 2700-3000 calories each day without gaining fat, if you maintain your activity level. You may, however, start actually adding muscle - which would cause the number on the scale to increase, with your size staying the same. I would recommend that you start paying more attention to body fat % than the scale while you are increasing your calories.
You can set your activity tracker to communicate with your nutrition tracker so that you get a more accurate range based on your TDEE plus your workout each day (the ranges will vary based on your workouts).
I would absolutely agree with RenataRuns that you should start adding the calories back in slowly. The fact that you are not still losing at the low calorie range might indicate that your metabolism isn't in the "average", and it may take some time to get it to speed up again. I would think about adding 100 calories per day every week, and keep an eye on the body fat %. I'd also give myself a month or so of doing this, and a 5 lb allowance, because bodies can take some time to adjust to changes (and seem to like holding on to water whenever they get a change).

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
