Blood pressure was over 120/80. since losing 45 lbs from exercise and better diet over the last 6 months, it is now 107/75. is the systolic # too low?

BP is only too low: if it is causing you symptoms (Dizziness or passing out.) Otherwise it is fine to have a SBP in that range. Congratulations on losing the weight. No concerns if you are having no symptoms.
