Obesity: Our blood pressure varies during rest and physical activities. The best thing you can do for your health is to take control of your diet, exercise, and stay under the care of a physician. Make sure a physician clears you for an exercise program. Take complete control of your diet and habits that may cause your obesity. Change your foods. Start to exercise gradually and stay consistent. Good luck.

Not for the BP.: The blood pressure numbers don't worry me. It's typical for the BP numbers to go up a bit like that when you stand up, and as long as the numbers go down as you noted, then that's fine. But your BMI does put you at long term risk for high BP, diabetes and heart disease. You should see someone to help you lose weight - dietitian perhaps.
