In order to prevent the increase of fasting blood sugar, you should pay attention to your diet in daily life. You should not eat foods that are easy to make blood sugar, such as sugar, honey, chocolate, juice, sweet drinks, cakes, sweet bread and Sugar cakes, etc. You can eat more soy and its products, which are rich in protein, vitamin B and dietary fiber, they have the effect of delaying the rise of blood sugar.
With everything that what we eat is here in Question! Make all the Food for each day, yourself. No Bread, no pasta and all the things that come in Cans. No Juice( except you cook it only for yourself without sugar or substitutes) With time you will get used to it and on the end, you won't grave it anymore. There are a lot of Receipts that can be found in TV, books or on the net, or make your own.
Y eat sweets when you think you need it? Instead, take a glass of mineral water with a tee spoon of lemon and drink it down within a half an hour. After that, just a cup of warm water and nothing else. You will see, that your graving for something sweet, will go away every time you do so.
We wanted to check back in with you to see how you are doing and how the management is going. All the best.
Given your weight and your diet habits, would suggest very strongly that you consider yourself at high risk of diabetes developing in the future.
What was your hba1c? Truly normal is 5 or less, so if you were above 5 that is also of concern (even if it doesn't concern your doctor).
Insulin levels can be abnormal (and causing health issues) well in advance of your blood sugars rising.
Fruits, sweets, juices and desserts are all very high sugar and are certainly stressing your body and your pancreas and hindering your ability to lose weight. There is no such thing as an essential carb or sugar, but you definitely need high quality proteins and healthy fats to nuture your body.
Suggest that you replace your fruits and deserts with low carb items and increase your proteins (for satiety and good nutrition). Desserts can be some low carb fruits such as berries, unsweetened yoghurt, some nuts. Cut the juices and replace with water or plain teas.
You may even want to look into paleo or low carb eating.

Normal fasting blood sugar levels is 72 to 100 for the average person. Yours are slightly elevated at 103. This would mean that you should begin watching this to make sure they don't continue to rise and to see if you can impact it to lower the number. Ways to do so naturally are through diet including cutting back on sugar and carbs as well as increasing your exercise. Weight control can help with diabetes control. Do you know your BMI? Also shoot for that target BMI. https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm
