What's your height, weight (current and goal), and age? All those can influence the weight loss/maintenance and number of calories you need.
My maintenance calorie level is around 1500-1600/day, and I'm very active. Height 5'2", current weight ~110, age 55. I Crossfit two or three times a week, lift heavy things twice a week, and do about 4-5 hours of play/slow moving a week.
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
