In brief: Don't give up

Im surprised you didn't gain more than 45 pounds on 3000 calories a day.
Even though you haven't lost weight, did you stop gaining when you cut back? Depending on your height and level of activity, you may need to cut back some more. If you are 5'6" or less and sedentary, 1500 calories will maintain your weight.
