I also developed gestational diabetes when I was pregnant last year and it's quite likely I will develop adult onset if I do not lose weight either. I've managed 12lbs in the last 2 months and will have to really work on it to ensure that I decrease my risk. What kind of diet are you following? I joined a weight loss class (always was my greatest fear / dislike) but it seems to be working for me. You shouldn't feel pressured to get the gastric band unless it is something you feel that you need or feel that it is the right thing to do. I know it is possible to control diabetes through diet, so I'm hopeful that if I do develop it, that I'll strive to control it with my diet.

Keep me posted on how you're doing! :)
