I am also an avid beleiver that no matter how short you are you should not go below 1200 cal's per day (your body needs those calories just to do it's day to day job of keeping you alive!!)
As you are also starting the C25K I'd recommend even upping those cals consumed so your overall cal intake is no less than 1200.
I've been cycling anywhere between 1200-1700 - it may seem hard but the more you eat the more you will lose as you begin to exercise as well - your body needs to continue working on it's 1200 cal's a day and feed the muscles you are working out on too.....plus there is the calories expended during your exercise also.....
hope I've not confused you too much here - it's just a matter of finding your range and tweaking it until it is perfect - just remember that your body will get used to what you do and how much you eat and slow your metabolism down accordingly so eventually you will stop losing, also if you eat too little you will enter starvation mode - NOT a good idea!!
