I'm no expert, but I have been doing a lot of reading! So I'll chat with you.
To start with, 3 pounds in a month is not an unreasonably small amount of weight loss. Do that every month and you will get to the goal line! I've also learned from my reading that the rate of weight loss slows the further you go -- you probably won't lose the next 60 pounds nearly as quickly as you lost the first. And congratulations for that, by the way! I'm impressed and hope to be able to say I did that some day.
Your level of activity sounds at least moderate to me.
Since you're not losing weight quite as fast as you would like, I'm not sure that adding calories makes that much sense. Could you convince yourself that 1600 would work better both in not making you eat more than you seem to want and increasing your weight loss a bit?
As for low carb, healthy snacks, a handful of nuts is considered healthy these days -- walnuts, almonds, macadamias, peanuts, and other tree nuts show up pretty frequently in healthy food lists. Nonfat yogurt is another biggie. Have you tried edamame?
Hope that helps!
