"starvation mode" may be a myth, but metabolic adaptation is VERY real.. it will happen inevitably, however, the severity and consequences and speed vary individually.
Id be willing to bet you are eating more than that and dont realize it.
the vast VAST majority, even of seasoned calorie counters, severely underestimate their food intake!
Are you weighing your food on a digital scale, or using measuring cups or eyeballing portion sizes? Using portion control "deck of cards=chicken portion" kind of method?
Are you using "pre-packaged" meal items?
Have you gone out to eat even once (even if it was subway or a salad or something?
HOWEVER if youre losing then its working, so keep doing what youre doing!

I do not eat. I FEED.
I do not sleep. I RECHARGE.
