Welcome! I think the fact that you are now having to go on medication is cause enough to get back into the game! Good for you taking those steps, that's awesome!
I don't have diabetes; but my mom did and I saw what she had to deal with; so I understand. I think you got some good goals; get off the meds and loose some weight (fat) and be healthier in general. I lost 125lb's by using this site so if you stick with it and record everything like you should I don't see why you wont be making wicked progress.
Good luck and wish you all the best!
