Dons tin hat

But it drives me mad "loose" means your clothes are loose and sounds like "luce". Lose is to lose something, weight or an item and sounds like "lews" or "loos"

Awaits flaming grin

Quite right Spam. Am in total agreement wink

Oh I have to admit to agreeing with you - I'm quite anal and pedantic about spelling! Hopefully though if we all LOSE weight our clothes will become LOOSE grin

Erm well, some of my weight is a bit loose (or is that just saggy!) grin.

Agree with you though smile

Oh this bugs me too. I used to frequent a weightloss forum a few years back, and even there it was 50/50 whether people would spell it right hmm

Oh well done! It's been driving me nuts too grin

I think OP needs to losen up wink

In total agreement, you should take off your tin hat!

There are threads about this very frequently.

It won't change anything. You have to let it go or the vein starts pulsing and the blood pounding in your ears.

But, just this once, let me also add...

IT'S ETC NOT ECT.

Okay, I'm back to zen-like acceptance.

Yes, you are right, and I am as guilty as anyway else.

Hopefully we'll all waste the Dc's leftovers so that they don't go to our waists!

And of course we'll lose weight so our clothes will be looser.

I'd love to loose weight. Just fire it off my fat arse like cannon balls of flobber grin

forever you need to control your second O temptation, I have seen you 'loosing' even after reading this thread - gah!!! grin grin

Okay okay....going to try and adopt zen like acceptance - this will be tougher than losing weight though I think!
