```without knowing what depenVar1 and depenVar2 are, it is not possible to

however, note that what you are asking for are the predicted values from
the equation and this depends solely on the value of the constant and
the value of the coefficient for BSA; apparently, these are "very
similar" in the two regressions; do you mean to ask for the predicted
values or are you trying to predict some kind of residual? if you want
some kind of residual, you will need to add an option; see -h regress
postestimation- and click on "predict"
