Pre-diabetes

I was just diagnosed with pre-diabetes and was put on Metformin. My doctor told me if I lose weight and exercise I won't need to continue with the meds. My concern is if I start taking Metaformin, I will have to keep taking it. My doc also said that the Metaformin helps you lose weight, is that right?
