It sounds like your husband doesn't want to! It isn't hard to lose weight with Diabetes, but it has to be his decision. HE has to take responsibility for his actions (or lack of them). I fully understand where you are coming from. My husband had a number of health issues, and smoking and drinking caused major problems with them. Altho' he knew the risks, he chose to continue.
One thing that you MIGHT be able to get away with is to gradually swap out some of the less healthy foods in his diet and replace them with healthier alternatives, and gradually decrease his portions. Also, gradually reducing the less wise choices of snacks coming into the house for him, will mean that at least you are sneakily helping him.
As far as coming off medication from losing the weight, some people can, but it doesn't mean that everyone will. This is up to his Dr.
I wish you well, and for him I hope that he sees sense.
