Blood pressure and exercise

i just want to see if anyone out there knows anything about the relationships of exercise, losing weight, and blood pressure. let me start by telling u my situation. i'm in the army national guard and i'm tring to go to flight school. when i first entered the process i had a physical, and every thing was good. my bp was 110/70, and i felt i was in decent shape. i could pass the physical fitness test with no problem, but they said i was about 20 lbs. over weight according to the army standards. okay so i started dieting and doing more cardio exercises. Oh by the way i was around 190-195 lbs. at a height of 5'8". now one year later i take the same physical because it is required every year, and i've lost 20-25 lbs, so i'm around 170 lbs., but guess what my bp is 140/90. i feel really good physical and i can run like the wind, but he says i might have hbp.
