I'm 17 and 5'2 I weigh 141. My doctor says I weigh too much for my age and height and said if I don't lose weight I could become diabetic. Any suggestions for good workouts to lose weight quickly?

You should start eating healthy food, some fruits, vegetables. Your doctor can give you one diet for your case, then you should start walking at least 15 minutes every day, and increase 5 minutes every week. Take care, my mother suffered diabetes for long time, you are in time.

First off, I am diabetic and have since I was 17,  Personally, my best A1c was 5.7. 

You're doing the right thing by getting this monster under control now. Please don't wait for years like I did. You have too much to lose. 

I suggest that you go with a balanced approach. Build muscle and do cardio, too. More muscle gives you much better glycemic control. Since heart problems are almost inevitable for any person with blood sugar issues, cardio helps greatly. I try to eat high fiber foods since they release sugar into the blood stream slowly. This prevents the highs and lows that cause that roller coaster of energy. I check my blood sugar often, too. I also drink tons of water, because diabetics get dehydrated easily. 

Don't be too hard on yourself. Slip ups will happen. Just take it as a lesson learned and get back on that horse. Take it easy, Cretia

I'm borderline diabetic/insulin resistant, I had gestational diabetes when I was pg. 

There are lots of fruits you shouldn't eat, some are high in sugar that will cause your bs to spike. Grapes, watermelon, oranges, pineapple. The only fruits I eat are berries, apples, and cantaloupe. If eaten in s,all amounts you can have the others just pay attention to how you feel after eating them,

For carbs I eat, sweet potatoes, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, quinoa and cous cous.

You can look on line to get the actual portions of protein, carbs, and sugars your allowed.

Exercising will also drop your sugar levels drastically. It he,ps your body process the sugars you eat more effectively..hth
