Sherry,
All the suggestions given so far are good; talk to your doctor, speak to a dietician, read SparkPeople articles, and I would also suggest a key word search on the internet - just be careful that the source is reputable like webmd, mayo clinic, etc. And as mentioned, exercise helps.

Carbs should be limited and should be ones like whole grains, etc., unless you have a gluten intolerance. Your doctor know your health situation better than we do.

Wishing you all the best!

try seeing a dietitian and look into lowering your carbs/sugar intake or ask your doctor since no one else really knows all the details of your health

Hi Sherry,
It looks like you are on your way. Of course, tracking you food intake is a big help. You can see how much fat and cholesterol you are consuming. Consistent exercise is also necessary. Drinking your eight glasses of water helps. Reading the great articles here on Sparks about cholesterol reduction is another tool.
If you can just be patient and work at it every day, the weight should come off. We have to remember that this is not a diet. It is a life style change that has to be with us for the rest of our lives. Best wishes!
Lavender Lily

Last week I found out that my cholesterol and triglyrides are way to high, my dr put me on Lipotor and he told me if I could lose about 50 lbs that would help get the nnumbers down. I have been doing some reading on this and I'm unsure about what to look for and what to cut out or cut back on. Thank you.
