Unfortunately Sharepoint SP2 removed the loops within workflows, as it was unfortunately pretty easy to create infinite loops.

See: Service Pack 2 prevents an on-change workflow from starting itself

If you scroll towards the bottom, you will also get an idea of how to create a similar while loop - The issue is that you have to keep track of 2 different workflows, dealing with 2 custom list. Bascially one triggers another one, creating the effect of a 'continuous' loop.
