Hello and welcome to Diabetes Forum! I had this same problem in the 1990's when I started using modern day insulins. The insulin caused me to gain 57 pounds over a three year interval. That caused me to become insulin resistant, a characteristic of Type 2 diabetes. I was a Type 1 with insulin resistance. That is called "double diabetes". I was given a Type 2 med (Avandia) and continued using my insulin as usual.

I bought a treadmill and used it every day while gradually increasing the speeds and the incline. My leg muscles became stronger. That spring I started walking outdoors, three miles in one hour on roads with hills. I lost most of my weight I had gained that year. In the meantime I have reduced my carb intake to 130g per day. That requires less insulin. By lowering the insulin dosages you will find it much easier to lose weight. I have a friend who eats only 80g of carbs per day. He had much weight to lose. That has worked very well for him. Good luck with your weight problem. Ask all the questions you want.
