Our expert says:
I don't think you are morbidly obese as you have a BMI of 26,9 which is in the overweight category, but not obese. The gallstones are not 'holding on' to your fat. You may find that after the op you will feel much better. The body fat% of 39% is high, but this is because I suspect your ratio of muscle tissue to fat tissue is still low. The regular exercise will change this - you have proof in the 2,5 inches and 1% body fat that you have already lost, so I would persevere with the diet and the exercise. You can discuss the use of Xenical with your dietitian as this could just promote extra fat loss. See what she says.
