I made it 19 days pull free- the longest I've ever gone! There were definitely challenging days, where I felt like all of my thoughts were consumed by trich. And other days were easier with less urges. So although my streak is over, I am still really proud of how I did. The lash pictured below has been bothering me for days. It was long and straight and despite using an eyelash curler, it never curled. It just stuck straight out. So I tried my hardest to ignore it. But I'd gently tug on it every once in a while... and then I started to notice that the lash hurt. And that was more irritating than it being straight. This morning I kept tugging on it and it kept hurting. I knew it would quit hurting if I just pulled it out. I knew this lash would end my streak... and I gave in. And after that I pulled out the tweezers and pulled a few hairs that I had been bugging me as well. I knew if I was going to try again tomorrow that these hairs would make it challenging. I know that's probably stupid... cause there is always going to be some hair that is bothersome.
Pull free day 1- starting tomorrow (really... I should start trying right now before I do some damage). Okay... pull free day 1 starts tomorrow, but I'm going to start fighting the urges now.
