They basically do the doppler to see how much the carotid arteries are narrowed and whether they need to operate to open them up or not as it can cause a stroke if it closes up totally. Losing weight will definitely help your cholesterol - 7 kg is a LOT already! Good for you!
If you have been together 11 years, won't relationship counselling help? One tends to change over the years and sometimes it feels as if you totally lose the "vibe" of the relationship but it does not mean that it is necessarily over, sometimes the relationship just changes into a different kind of relationship? Most people that are married for 40 or 50 years will tell you that it wasn't plain sailing all the way and at times they really did not feel very loving towards their partners! Anyway, this is something you need to decide for yourself - if the relationship is "toxic" it is also not the best thing for you in the long run.
