Sparkpeople has a special section for high cholesterol, you'll find it here: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/health_condit
You can set up your Nutrtion Tracker to maintain your weight, if you don't need to lose any; or lose a pound or so a week-- losing weight slowly is really the best way-- if you need to lose any weight. And you can track the fat grams etc-- it's a really useful tool, to see right away which types of food are causing you trouble with your diet.
As you know, there are many factors that affect cholesterol levels, and sometimes a person can do everything "right" and the level is high and that's just how it is. But it's certainly worth taking some time to see if there are ways to change the foods we eat.
You can also use the Fitness Tracker to track your exercise. If you get a fairly accurate idea of how many calories you burn through exercise, you can then adjust how many calories you eat, so you don't end up looking "gaunt". So using the 2 trackers together can really help you manage things. It is not necessary to exercise for hours every day, and can actually be counter-productive.
Edited a little bit because I was unsure when you said "54 kg heavy" did you mean you weigh 54 kg, or did you mean you're overweight by 54 kg.
