In brief: Yes

The diabetes prevention program (dpp- please look at their website for information) has shown that proper diet and exercise (5-7% weight loss, 30 min of moderate activity 5 days per week) can prevent progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes.
This is the best stage to get motivated and start working on your diet and exercise regimen.
