I have had great success with my band thus far. I've worked hard to get the weight off and have lost 85 lbs. since my surgery on Jan. 27, 2009. I exercise everyday -- I do water aerobics, recumbant bicycling, step aerobics and walking tapes (at home).  I also have a Wii fit which I occasionally use.  I follow all the bandster rules (no water before, during and 1/2 hour after meals), eat protein first, drink the required amount of water each day, etc. I feel wonderful!  It's great to know that I won't ever have to lose this same 100 plus pounds again.  I love my band and would do it again!!! I'm loving life!
