Too loose??? No idea what you mean by that, but it may be out of adjustment. Basically when you are in your innermost rear gear, and your smallest front chainring (also the innermost), your front derailleur cage should come within 1mm of the chain or even lightly rub it. It seems that chain stretch + gear wear also contributes to this problem.
