I had my lap band in March 2008.  I had 100 lbs to lose.  I lost 80 lbs but put 20 back on.  I am still happy to have the lapband because I am still down 60 lbs.  I think the key to making the lapband work for you, is to find the right "fill".  It takes time, patience and follow up with your MD to get to the right fill.  DD.
