Your exercise sounds good, now you just need to work on the eating pattern and then the weight should come off.

You need to reduce your calories, and since you are pre-diabetic, try to limit refined carbohydrates (such as white bread, white rice, pasta, flour, sugar etc.).

It is good that you are eating better. Keep working on improving your eating. For example instead of a Subway sandwich at lunch, maybe eat a mixed salad (various salad ingredients, raw veg) and a source of lean protein such as tinned fish or grilled chicken breast/shrimps, or a boiled egg.
