I definitely prefer WINNING over losing. I plan on winning by regaining my health.

lol...I like it a heck of a lot better than the word GAIN!

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

I like it in the context of:
...lose weight
...lose baggage
...lose track of time because you're having fun
and so on!

I think of lose in the same way someone would advise me to lose the attitude, scarf, or excess whatever. I am just happy to see you use the word correctly.

I really like what GOALIEGRANDMA3 shared about the cartoon saying ," The weight can STAY lost, and I don't want it back again." That's a perfect way to look at it. I like seeing the number go down on the scale. It gives me a sense of pride as to how hard a person has to work to lose those extra pounds. I'm concerned when one uses the term "deprivation" however. A person who is losing weight and doing it the correct way should NEVER feel deprived of food. That's not what this process is all about. Moderation and self control is how I like to look at it.

I saw a cartoon once about losing. The punch was that the weight can STAY lost. I do not intend to ever find it.

I like the word lose when it applies to weight. But trim and slim are also good words for me. The word gain gives me the heebie jeebies, probably because I'm in recovery from an eating disorder.

Yes, Richard Simmons talks about this a lot, too, just like the word "Diet" or "Die t", doesn't bring a good picture in your mind. Plus, as you say, when you lose something, you look for it, want to get it back, and probably will find it again. Those words are all sort of weird. "Drop" a few pounds, get "skinny", skinny brings to mind the people living in concentration camps!!! I suppose getting healthy or "fit" would be better. But it's all really about getting used to "deprivation", isn't it, in some form or another. And the average person does not want to be "deprived", even for a month or so.............

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

When I think of the word lose, I think in terms of it being a bad thing...

After all losing my keys, mind, pet are not exactly good....So what about losing weight? Is my subconscious mind going to go looking for it whether I want to find it or not?

As I have begun this journey I'm trying to come up with terms related the loss of pounds as "reduced, shed, or something similar."

I am also choosing to focus what I am gaining in the process. Sometimes this is easier said than done.

I'm just curious about how other people think of the word. :)
