I will camp out and see how it goes. If need be, I'll go down in calories and see why happens. I took a 4 day break last week for a friends wedding. And it didn't do much damage - and I am possibly going back down again.
Thank you all for the advice!

Thanks for the opportunity to clarify. For what it's worth, I would never recommend a 700-800 calorie diet for anyone. Not because I believe it's unhealthy for short duration. It may be the healthiest thing we could do for short duration. It's just that I don't know anyone who would need to go that low to lose the weight they wanted to lose.
It's difficult for me to understand how you could not lose the weight you want to lose on 1,000 to 1,100 calories. You can't be that small a person. I see you're getting some exercise. But even people who exercise burn 70-80% of their calories through general activity. And as I pointed out, THAT'S the category that tends to suffer during the latter stages of weight loss.
It would be interesting to find out how you're doing were you to strap on a pedometer.
