Like "Yes, eat with your meter to test is good. Another is to cut down on portion sizes, a good way to do this is to use smaller plates. A 8" instead of a larger one. And eat lots of veggies, all the colors not just a couple of them. Because some veggies are not very good for you (the starchy kind). It is okay to treat yourself once in a while too. Because if you deprive yourself, you will start to crave it. And when you do give in to that craving you over binge on it. By all means educate yourself, no one else is going to do this for you. Start out with small steps and work your way up. Realize that you are human and will fall down. Just pick yourself up and try, try ,try again. This didn't happen to you overnight so don't expect to overcome it overnight. Just TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME."
