New to this...

Hi everyone!
    I'm a relatively new vegetarian (6 months or so) & I've only just
"discovered" your website about 2 weeks ago.  I think it's wonderful!
Everyone seems to be so nice & so helpful!
    I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience to mine:
Ever since I've become a vegetarian; not only have I not lost weight,
but I've GAINED some. I don't understand why this is happening.  I
thought that meat was just about the worst food as far as fat content
(among other things...). I've never eaten so many vegetables & fruits in
my life. I also buy non-fat versions of everything & eat many small
meals a day,etc... I feel I'm doing everything the "right" way, but yet
the weight is not going down.  Could it have to do with the extra
carbo's I'm now replacing meat with? (pasta,rice,potatos,bread,etc...)
Any advice or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated!
    Also, there seems to be a lot of recipes on this site that include
zucchini. I've never tried one & am sort of apprehensive.  They just
look so dry.......!!!!
