Now that so many people are losing weight, maybe it's time for a little spelling refresher on the difference between loose and lose?
I know this probably sounds either facetious or anal retentive. The latter would be correct :-)

I hardly ever see that on these forums... or maybe I've just become desensitized. On another weight-loss message board I used to frequent, I actually saw the wrong spelling MORE OFTEN than the right one. Drove me nuts.
I'm a notorious grammar/ spelling Nazi. I try to contain it on the web. It doesn't stay contained as much as it should. The spelling/ grammar/ correct use issue that just kills me is text- speak on a forum. I hate it and refuse to use it anyways, but it drives me bat- shit. I can't read a post written like that for fear of unloading on them.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

If you have issues with the spelling and grammar issues here, you should try frequenting motorcycle forums.
Yes, loose has its place, but losing sight of spelling is never a good thing. Although, if I am typing on an iPhone, auto spell is just a frickin' nightmare! I always seem to lose the "r" on your and my writing often comes out as if it was written by a toothless hillbilly. Although, some of the content probably comes across the same way regardless of the spelling. Nevertheless, loose is what you(r) pants are after you lose weight.
