Hi I'm 52 yrs old . I had a mini stroke beginning of this year . Ive had lots of tests done and so far the cause of my mini stroke appears to be high cholesterol as some of the arteries in my neck are blocked but don't require surgery at the moment . I'm at my heaviest I've ever been 10 stone and I'm 5ft 1 . Never been on a diet or ate really healthy so need to start now .
