Hi,
If that was your total cholesterol, it is not too bad, but if it was your LDL(low density cholesterol) it is a bit on the high side.  Your blood sugar definitely was high, even if it was taken after eating.
I suggest you speak with your primary doctor soon to arrange for a fasting blood sugar to be done, as well as meet with a dietician to start on changes in your diet. Some daily exercise will help, regardless of if you need to lose a significant amount of weight or not. Until you meet with the dietician, start cutting back on all sweet , sugary foods and junk foods. Try to have more lean meats and fruits/veggies as well as high fiber foods. Please do  speak with your doctor soon as you may also need to start on medication.
Take care.
