    won't lose anything

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) You won't lose anything for the wait.
    2) You won't lose anything for waiting.

    Meaning: You won't lose anything by waiting. Waiting won't cost you anything.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    No — they are both incorrect.

    Navi, you are better off with "by waiting".
