if you aren't really hungry for lunch, keep the the lunch you can keep down right now, add a midmorning snack and a midafternoon snack to help make up the calories you aren't eating at lunch.
decent options could be:
-yogurt and fruit/granola
-fruit and cheese/nuts/nut butter
-crackers and cheese
-veggies and a yogurt or bean based dip

or if you have a 400 cal lunch that you think is what you should be eating calorie wise, just have 1/3 of it at your midmorning snack, 1/3 at lunch, and 1/3 for your afternoon snack.

as of lately I am having a hard enough time getting enough calories.

dinner isn't a problem. breakfast is 300 to 400 calories. but because of all the exercise I do I am not very hungry for lunch. and when I am I am lucky to eat 300 calories.

I am working on getting enough sleep. I am just worreied that not enough calories will stall my weight loss even further.
