I figure since this forum has a lot of questions about weight loss, it might be good to clear up the confusion between losing weight and "loosing weight." You know, before I punch my monitor or something extreme like that. Ha ha! Ha?
Anwyay. Sometimes the best way to figure out the proper meaning and usage of a word, is to look at that word's antonym -
Lose is the opposite of words like win, acquire or gain.
Loose is the opposite of tight.
So, we lose weight. And when we lose weight, sometimes our pants become too loose.
