Loose vs. Lose: A Weighty Matter

Matt says:
"This drives me crazy, because the words mean different things and are pronounced differently."

Where does this fat fighter go wrong? Surely this is a simple spelling goof, confusing "loose" with "lose."


Correction: A Healthier You: Lose Weight

Nifty Mnemonics:
  • "If your loops are loose, you can lose a shoe."
  • Because the two words are pronounced differently, it can help to identify rhyming words. Try "The goose is loose" or "The moose is loose."
