Weight gain and after birth plan

hello, first time mom here trying to assess whether my weight gain is acceptable. I have gained almost 30# but started overweight already, currently about 70# total overweight. I want to get it off asap.

Any thoughts ? Suggestions ? I do plan to breast feed.

Breastfeeding will help a bit but clean eating and exercise will help too.

How far along are u? Cuz if u started over weight u should've list weight not gained with pregnancy. The bigger u are the less ur supposed to gain.
