The last time I ate any food was on Thanksgiving. That was 19 days ago. I had the normal Thanksgiving meal, turkey, stuffing, etc. The next day I ate nothing and began my fast. And that day nothing happened, no bowel movement (even after all the heavy food I'd eaten the day before). I'm accustomed to being very regular so going a day without pooping definitely disturbed me. Fast forward to day three of my fast. Still nothing. I started to freak out a bit at the idea of all this waste from my Thanksgiving dinner being locked up inside me.👀 So I ran to the store for an enema, a very drastic measure. And even after the enema, I didn't experience much relief. I went online and read that it is normal on a fast to go the entire time without having a bowel movement and that made me feel less worried. Although I kept hope alive that it wouldn't apply to me! 🙀
Unfortunately I have to say that as of day 19, that turkey and stuffing and everything else is still in me! It doesn't appear to be going anywhere any time soon.⏳ I have definitely learned my lesson and if I ever fast again, I'll be sure to taper my eating off gradually beforehand to cut down on how much waste my body retains. And of couse, I'm very curious about when I'll finally be able to go!
