Your lifestyle after pregnancy?

Many of us who have gestational diabetes will get cleared of diabetes after pregnancy, but should you still be careful what you eat after?  Did you know that there is a chance that you will develop type 2 diabetes later in life after having gestational diabetes?  

Do you have a game plan for how to help manage your health after pregnancy so you don't have to deal with a type 2 diagnosis later?  What advice would you give to someone who is cleared for now, but wants to prevent complications in the future?
