Gaining weight while breastfeeding

I've been breastfeeding my son for almost 16 months and I don't see him weaning anytime soon. My problem is with weight gain!
1. I'm ravenously hungry 24/7 STILL
2. I've tried controlling my diet, exercising more etc, but I don't want to cut too many calories

I've gained 30 lbs easily, I weigh more now than I did the day I went in to have him and I was just shy of my pre-preg weight at my 6 week check up I'm so discouraged, this is the most I've ever weighed. Is there anything I can do (aside from weaning) to get my body back? Or is it just my body doing what it will do and when I wean I can focus on reshaping?
