Hi I'm Renée and I had a baby almost 2 years ago. I gained 60 pounds and it's a lot harder to lose weight now then before. I'm planning a wedding and need to lose 70 pounds in a year... Is it possible and if so how?

Definitely possible.  Healthy rate to drop weight is .5 lbs to 2 lbs a week with a healthy diet and regular exercise.  Set short term goals leading to a long term goal.  Start with basic exercises and low intensity cardio 2 to 4 times a week...

It's all in the planning!!! I had the same goal back in 2013 & planned the first 3 months, week by week, day by day. I knew what workouts I'd do each day and gradually modified my eating to incorporate less and less crap. 
Quite simply I started doing HIIT cardio (intense stuff) for the first 3 months - when overweight you initially lose a lot of weight fast which feels great. I started on 10-15mins per day, increasing by 5 minutes when I felt up to it. After the first month I cranked it up and was doing up to 45mins-1hour a day of intense cardio. 
By the third month I switched to the gym and lifting weights and never looked back. 

My advice..... Write down everything you eat each day and assess it, start cutting out the crap & introduce healthier stuff (I lost 20lbs just by making small adjustments along with working out. Too many fail because they try to eat clean too fast & the brain freaks out!!!)

Start following people, check their created workouts or do a skimble program to get you started 

Finally... I live by one rule when it comes to cardio.... IF I AIN'T SWEATING BUCKETS I DIDN'T DO IT RIGHT!!!! Live by that rule when trying to lose weight and you'll begin to see results... Add cleaner eating to the equation & the fat will melt away leaving behind a sexy-assed mummy!! 
GOOD LUCK!!!!

It's very doable to lose that much in a year.

I think u should maybe start with more cardio excersizes then slowly move on to the more intense workouts.

And keep at it we'll be cheering for you, and I'll dance at ur wedding.
