I don’t have pre-diabetes or diabetes but I work in the health care field.  The absolute biggest recommendation I have is to try your hardest to make the necessary lifestyle changes that will be recommended to you.  This will really help stop the progression to diabetes.  I wouldn’t focus so much on being your “skinniest” – instead, focus on developing a healthier lifestyle.  There are all sorts of research-proven data to support the idea that lifestyle modifications are very important in preventing pre-diabetes from transitioning to diabetes.  Some examples: 150 minutes/ week of moderate-intensity exercise (increase your heart rate to 30-50% above your resting heart rate), follow an appropriate eating plan, stop smoking.  Your doctor may or may not recommend that you start taking a medication called metformin.  Remember that you want to make sustainable changes – using your wedding as motivation is a good starting point, but remember that after the wedding is over, the changes need to still continue.  Good luck!
