Welcome, PICKLES0915. The good news is, you are getting help, both from your doctor and now here on Spark People. (the bad news is that you still don't feel well)
Not exercising at all is not the answer -- you need to talk to your doctor to see what he/she recommends, and then start a gradual exercise regimen. Also, there are a lot of different BP medications, and you may need to have yours adjusted several times before your pressure is under good control. At any rate, walking is generally considered a safe form of exercise for almost anyone that can walk, so I would suggest starting by walking for a short time and gradually increasing the distance. Even a very moderate amount of exercise will help boost your metabolism and just make you feel better.
As others here have suggested, use the nutrition tracker to keep track of everything you consume -- if you plan your meals ahead you can adjust the portions and components to stay within the recommended calorie range. Other factors that can increase your BP are salt intake, the use of alcohol, and the use of NSAID drugs such as ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve).
Communicate and be proactive with your physician, and utilize all of the tools available here on Spark People -- you CAN do it!
