I really think those calculators should be used as a starting point and adjusted up or down based on personal experience.
Everyone's body is a little different. For example, I have never really lost on 1500 and had to go 1200 - even at my highest weight.
You are starting to get down there though into the lower end so I have heard people saying here that it's very hard to lose those last 10-20 lbs despite following plan. You could try a lower amount and see how that works out?
High - 281
Current - 252
Low - 159 (2012)
