Thumbs down Quantity vs. Calories?

I'm trying to seriously lose weight for my wedding in a few months- and I've been counting calories, trying to keep them low. Reading around in the forum, I think they might be TOO low. By a lot.

I'm definitely not starving myself. I'm not stuffing my face either- I'm eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a snack here or there, but I'm checking the label and keeping the calories low.

My question is- if I'm eating enough that I don't feel hungry, but I'm still eating under 700 calories, will it still make it hard for me to lose weight?

Example of what I've been eating:

Breakfast: 3 egg whites with half a cup chopped tomato, grease the pan with I can't believe it's not butter

Lunch: Salad with salmon, lemon juice instead of dressing

Dinner: A can undiluted veggie beef soup.

Snack- a whole pickle, cup of yogurt, or jell-o.
