"Losin' Myself" is the first single from the album Body, Mind, Soul by American singer-songwriter-actress Deborah Gibson, released in January 1993. The song was written by Gibson, and co-written and co-produced with Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers.

"Little" Louie Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzales for Masters At Work Productions remixed the song for the single and maxi single releases. Stalling at #46 on the Billboard Hot Maxi Singles, #49 on the Hot Contemporary, and #86 on the Hot 100 and therefore regarded as a flop, this song marks Gibson's last appearance on the Hot 100 to date.

Gibson recently commented on her thoughts on "Losin' Myself" in a Q&A session from her Twitter followers. Gibson stated, "...I love the song, but it was at the wrong time. I love the song "Losin' Myself"."

Music video[edit]

The Matthew Rolston-directed video clip for "Losin' Myself" generated a minor controversy due to Gibson's portrayal of a stripper doing a pole dance.
