Introduction to the Program

Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal. But it’s not high enough for type 2 diabetes.

  • More than 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes.
  • 9 out of 10 people with prediabetes don’t know they have it.

If you have prediabetes, you are more likely to get:

Heart disease


So what is PI-DPP?

PI-DPP is a yearlong program that uses the Prevent T2 curriculum. It is designed for people with prediabetes. It’s also for people who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes and want to lower their risk

Prevent T2 Goals

By the end of the first six months, your goal is to:

  • Lose at least 5 to 7 percent of your starting weight 
  • Get at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week 

By the end of the second six months, your goal is to:

  • Keep off the weight you’ve lost 
  • Keep working toward your goal weight, if you haven’t reached it 
  • Lose more weight if you wish
  • Keep getting at least 150 minutes of activity each week

Your Six-Month Activity Goal

Your Six-Month Weight Goal

One goal of this program is to lose at least 5 to 7 percent of your starting weight in the next six months.

Using the Numbers Chart


If your starting weight is 200 pounds:

  1. Find “200” in the blue column that says “Wt.” This stands for your starting weight.
  2. The next three numbers to the right of your starting weight (200), are the number of pounds you need to lose if your goal is to lose 5%, 6% or 7% of your starting weight.

1.5% of 200 pounds = 10 pounds

6% of 200 pounds = 12 pounds

7% of 200 pounds = 14 pounds

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 16:3


  1. List three (3) things (ex. person(s), activities, way of thinking and resources)  that will SLOW YOU DOWN or STOP you from reaching your goal?
  2. For each “thing” or “item”, list HOW you will resolve it.
  3. If you are comfortable – SHARE 1 item (especially the one that you are ‘stuck’ on and ask the group for suggestions.
  4. Talk to or meet with your ‘coach’ for advice.
