Well done for getting started, that is really quite tough! There is the possibility that you are going too fast, this is common when starting out and the guide of being able to hold a conversation is a good one. I also like the idea of repeating some of the earlier weeks, it may just be that your body needs a little longer to get used to the idea of running. By doing exercise while also looking at your diet the weight will come off slowly and steadily, trust me this is the best approach! As for blood pressure reduce salt intake and caffeinie too, drink water and the exercise should help. Running outside is much more fun than the gym, do you have some local friends who could walk round some proposed routes with you? Walking may help too as it is time spent on your feet.
Good luck and enjoy it!
