Hi, Weight reduction will be good for your BP. However weight reduction is slow process and you should not let your BP high for long. Especially diastolic (the bottom one=100), it may be dangerous. It must be below 85.
Next Steps
Reduce salt intake. Measure BP regularly, if it is high, consult for medicines.
Health Tips
Restaurants and street food have high salt

Take the reading again after two weeks.  If it is consistently high, then you need to consult a doctor for a full Hypertension work-up. Calculate your BMI using your height and weight. If it's greater than 30 then you are obese which can be a cause for high BP and you need obesity management treatment. If you feel any complaints like headache,  palpitations, giddiness then visit a doctor.

The method for weight reduction is to cut on what you eat and to do exercise. You should aim for weight reduction of 10 kg at a time. Please consult a dietitian for detailed diet plan. There will be some reduction in BP, but not more than 5 mm.
Next Steps
Please get detailed investigations done under guidance of a Cardiologist and an assessment that you are fit to undergo weight reduction program.

Hello there. BP measurements can fluctuate with time to time and it needs multiple times of BP monitoring to actually say someone has raised BP. It’s a dynamic thing. I would suggest you calculate your BMI and if it falls in overweight category, a reduction in weight is advised. If BP still remains high after multiple times of checkup, a visit to a physician is advised.
Next Steps
Start exercising if not already, it has it’s long term benefits.
