Default G2x Recovery Mode Erasure

Hi, first post, and attempting to stick to forum rules and customs as much as possible... I have a question about recovery mode on my T-Mobile G2x (LG Optimus 2x). A couple months back, I was finally looking into modding and choosing a ROM. However, before doing any of that, I thought it smart to try a nandroid backup, which to my knowledge can be achieved through recovery mode (which I looked up, and found could be accessed with power button/volume down). So I tried it out and successfully booted into recovery mode. Satisfied that I was capable of that I rebooted, and to my serious disappointment and frustration, everything (almost) was gone. Contacts, messages, apps, the whole shebang. Interestingly, however, my pictures/media files remained, along with root access, and certain files I had stored internally. Other than that, I was looking at my phone like it was on day one. Since then, I've been too scared to try anything sketchy at all, and I've been religiously backing up everything with TitaniumBackup. What I want to know is, why did my phone reset like that, why did certain things remain, and how can I safely go about doing a nandroid backup now? I'd rather not delete everything again...

Apologies if that was long, but I hope I've made things clear enough! If you need more information, or if I'm an unknowing rulebreaker, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!
