She is 11 months and has been eating baby food and table food since 6 months. Shes never had any problems eating or trying new things.

But, for the past week, she hasnt wanted to eat anything except her bottle and cheese. Why might this be happening?! How do I get her to eat again? She only weighs about 16 pounds so her not eating food is making her lose some weight :(

Has this gotten better? I would keep trying to introduce healthy foods: fruit, veggies. Your pediatrician could always recommend seeing a dietitian.

Keep trying. It may be just a phase.

Just keep offering her diffrent options, three meals a day and 2-3 small snacks. Kids that age can go through times when their eating slows, my kids did that.

She might be teething, or she just might be in a stage.  Upset tummy?  I see this was several months ago.  How is she doing now?

I think as long as she is growing, even if slowly, you're doing alright.  She may just be fine boned and light framed...I think they all go through stages like that...cheese, no cheese, milk, no milk, fruit, no fruit...
