What's your longest streak lost?

I'm curious (and want to commiserate a bit :-) ) what some others' longest streaks they have lost are. (I just noticed that the verb, 'are', flew to the end of my sentence, similar to German...huh, learn something new every day)

I have recently only lost a meager 40 day streak, and earlier in 2017 lost an 80-something streak. Das ist nur ein bisschen streak (was ist 'streak' in Deutsch?)

Anybody else out there lose any big ones?

Did it hurt your motivation to not see that large number up in the corner anymore? What did you do?

I'd also love to hear tips from others about methods or habits that help keep you coming back to Duo every single day.

Well, I've just lost a 446 days streak two weeks ago. Tragic, tragic!...
Anyway, about your last request, I would say attitude and oportunity are the main reasons I come back everyday.
You see, once learning a language becomes important, a part of our life, then it's like any other daily routine (eating, taking a shower, brushing your teeth, resting). Unless that's how I see it.

Für Ihre Verlust...Hier gibt es einen Lingot. Dankeschön auch für Ihre Gedanken!

I realized that the streak number (for me, at least) was mostly to show others how consistent I am, and that what mattered was just picking up the next day and trying to break my previous record, and completing new skills.

I have lost one single streak long ago. Since then, I'm keeping it. Don't know what will happen with my motivation if (when) I lose my actual streak. Not planning to discover ... :)

Around two years ago i reached nearly 130(i dont remember the exact number) but couldnt maintain it, afterwards i lost my motivation and was coming to Duolingo as often as i used to.

I had lost a streak of 250 days, I made one pause of 6 days and now I am in 60 streak.Attitude is a big reason and it motivate me to have more lingots. But I don't know how I use the lingots. Somebody know to explain me?

Ich bin auch über Lingots verwirren. Ich weiß nicht, wie kann ich ihnen benutzen.
