Hello Bev and welcome,
I can't say how much I encourage you to take the bull by the horns and do whatever it takes to get you to a healthier place. I was about your weight 15 years ago when I was first diagnosed, but never took it seriously enough. I'm now on three different injections, oral meds and am struggling with a weight that reached over 300 lbs!
The tools, resources and encouragement are here for your use and can help you to keep this diagnosis in check and more importantly get you to a healthier place.
Be sure to get support from your diabetic educator as well as a diabetic dietitian...both will be hugely important for your journey away from diabetes.
Good luck to you and keep us posted on your progress!
The joy of the Lord is my strength!
