Welcome back to Spark! It's great that you and your daughter are doing this together. Seek out teams that share your interests and get involved. The more you reach out and participate the more you are visible to "friends".
As far as diabetes/obesity my only suggestion is to read books like Engine 2, Eat to Live, The McDougall Program, Skinny B!itch. One theme you may notice in all of these books is a vegan diet. The vegan diet is proven to reverse diabetes and a lot of other diseases.
