With a glance to the controversial SATS for English grammar for 6 and 7 year old children, and having read this forum for a few months, I would like to point out:
'' Lose'' : is to not win, to mislay, to part with.
''Loose'': is to be free or released, not close or compact, not tight.
There is no such word as 'loosing' if we are in the process of shedding weight we are 'losing' it.
Each week we aim to lose not loose and hopefully when we have lost ( not lossed) our clothes will all be 'looser' then we can call ourselves 'losers' or successful in the battle against the weight!
Sorry just one of those annoying grammatical errors that appears so much on this forum. Maybe we should have had SATS in school years ago Enjoy the sunshine, most of us!
