Hi Sian, welcome to Social Slimmers.

Well done on giving up the ciggies, that's a fantastic start.

My friend, who had been on medication for high blood pressure for a while, started Slimming World early last year, as well as taking her new rescue boxer dog on several long walks a day. She recently went back to the doctors and they found that her blood pressure was actually low! Losing weight, eating a healthy diet and exercise had brought her blood pressure down naturally so the medication were now making it too low. She's to go back for another blood test and, if it's still low, they will take her off the medication. Just goes to show that diet and exercise do work.

Good luck on your weight loss journey. I hope that you manage to get your blood pressure down.

My blood pressure has also dropped now I've lost weight and being more active, but everything takes time.
