Fish and Fish Oil are both very good sources of Omega-3, and the body uses it more easily in that form than from Flax Seed etc.
In my unqualified opinion, IF your cholesterol levels are fine, I wouldn't worry too much about it and just continue with what you are doing already. If you have a cholesterol problem, you may find that in time, as your weight reduces further (I noticed you have lost a lot already:-) you may find that your cholesterol improves. You might also benefit from a referral to a Registered Dietitian, taking some printouts from your SP Nutrition Tracker, for more qualified input.
Another thing I will comment on is that if you have any health conditions and/or are on any medications, don't take ANY supplements until you have been given the clear to by your Doctor. Sometimes the supplements, including Omega-3 Fish Oil and Flax Seed Oil, can interact with meds and potentially be dangerous.
I always had really high cholesterol (all lipids except a very low HDL) even tho' I was on meds for it and eating a very healthy diet, so my Dietitian prescribed Omega-3 Fish Oil. It helped, but it wasn't until I had lost a lot of weight that my cholesterol became normal - apart from a slightly too low HDL.
