I'm not an expert, but that sounds low, probably won't last and neither with the weightloss.
I agree that we need more information to make a determination, but saying that sounds low could be way off, too.
I maintain at about 1500. I'm female, 5'2", and 43 years old. Depending on sex, height, current weight, and age, it might not be low at all. One of our moderators, mecompco, is a weight loss star, is doing it the healthy way, and as per his signature, is doing 1500 calories a day.
Roemerach, check out this site Calorie Calculator - Daily Caloric Needs
if you want a second opinion as to what your caloric expenditure might be. Subtracting 500 per day from what you burn will give you a pound a week loss; 1000 lower per day will give you two pounds, etc.
