Duolingo removing progress?

Hello! I have finished lessons on German and Spanish, and even if I keep the streak, everytime I come back (every day at 5:30pm), I lost progress on at least one lesson per language, even with 5 hours remaining to keep the day streak! Is this a glitch or is it normal?

I lost progress on at least one lesson per language

Do you mean that at least one skill pass from golded to ungolded in each language?
If so, then it's normal.

Because you need to do each lesson multiple times to make the vocabulary really stick in your memory.

Because your memory tends to forgot the thing you didn't see "recently": the newest things are (in average) forgotten more quickly. Thus Duo algorithm, like any "learning by repetition" algorithm, evaluates what you have probably (almost) forgotten (combination of the things you seen recently + the ones you haven't seen a lot of times) and suggest you see it again. Suggestion is made by ungoldening the skill.

By lost progress, do you mean you are losing your streak? Or that you are losing word strength?

I believe they mean progress lost after completing a lesson.

My percentage of progress diminishes after I finish a new sub-section. I had 22%, then 16%, now 15%. Should be going up instead of down? and I have a 19-day streak with 50 as a daily goal. Anyone can explain?
