Make realistic short term goals that are attainable. Eat several small meals and develop a moderate exercise regimen. Building confidence and developing healthy habits are a good way to begin. Develop a strong support network to help keep you motivated and help you avoid becoming discouraged.

I got mine down and I maintain it with Metformin, a healthy diet and exercise. Losing weight is a plus for diabetics. Once I started losing weight, my blood sugar started dropping. Eating the proper foods including snacks will also help. It takes determination and perseverance to do this.
