Health Scare could become a reality if I don't make changes now!

While on vacation visiting my family, I found out I'm prediabetic. It really scared me because my father and my brother both have it. Both of my grandfathers had it. My grandmother has it. It runs heavily in my family.
I know it's better to have found out now when I can turn it around, but now I'm really stressed out about getting all this weight off right now! And I know that isn't a real option. I have to find ways to keep motivated. Ways to keep up with working out 4 - 5 times a week. Even if its only a 30 minute walk. Ways to eat healthier. My biggest issue is I have horrible food allergies. I'm allergic to all nuts and probably 90% of fruit, which makes it really hard to have healthy snacks. But I'm not going to use this as an excuse, but instead use it to motivate myself to find new creative snacks. I know if I had a buddy to workout with, that would make it somewhat easier. It's a lot harder to not go work out when you have someone waiting on you.
So I'm setting mini goals. I just need to figure out what I can realistically do within a reasonable amount of time.
