High pulse when resting

My resting pulse is between 85-95, and as I just started working out,I find after a few minutes of exercise, it goes to 150.  I'm about 40 lbs over wieght, don't smoke, drink regulary, and am wondering if this needs medical attention, or, if after I get in better shape, my resting pulse will go down.

Cut out ANY caffeine intake - gradually so you don't become super depressed/anxious/irritable. I am 27 and recently saw a cardiologist for the same reasons you are describing. Stopping caffeine all together has decreased my standing heart rate from about 95 to about 75. I am on the higher range of a normal BMI. If you are still having this problem after being off caffeine and having exercised for some time, I would suggest speaking to a MD. Sometimes other prescription medications can increase heart rate as well. If you take any regularly, check the side effects.
