    I don’t find this inspiring at all. I’m sure that the measures she uses to stay skinny aren’t much more extreme than some of the models we idolize here, but everything she posts on her story is about the gym, or is a skeletal body check. We strive for being skinny, healthy and successful, but this is borderline pro-Ana in my opinion- and I’m not referring to her size. Yes, she’s honest, but it’s clear that this is her entire personality and what her life revolves around. I think she’s in denial, and I wonder how her agency feels about it... also probably doesn’t help her book too many jobs.

    I was hoping she was just hypercritical of herself but after the post from yesterday, I couldn’t agree more.

    I wouldn’t say she’s “Pro Ana” at all. This is just what happens to your mind when you’re that severely stuck in your ED. Speaking from experience, it feels like you’re schizophrenic and you can’t beleive anything you hear or see. No matter who tells you you’re skinny, you need to eat, etc. you just can’t believe it. Your brain chemistry literally changes from lack of nourishment. It’s the only thing you think abou, it’s the only thing you care about, keeping up with the voices of your eating disorder.

    In regards to her social media presence, I think she’s doing it for attention/cry for help. But again, she probably doesn’t see herself as being thin at all.

    Sorry if this doesn’t make sense but it’s the hardest thing to explain but I really feel for Lexi and understand where she’s coming from.

    I was using "pro-ana" in the motivation sense, meaning that her posts might be motivational/aspirational for anorexics but likely nobody else, similar to the pictures of emaciated girls showing their ribs that are revered on pro-ana tumblr but not here. I should have been clearer about that- I wasn't implying that she herself is "pro" anorexia (although I don't think anybody really is, in the sense that they would wish anorexia on others, even people who use the "pro ana" label.)

    She does have a way of posting like a 2011 ED tumblr blog. Not in the pro Ana, but in a tracking-my-progress-online way. She’s truly putting it all out there, especially with this Evian photo.

    Pro-ana or not is a semantic issue, but whatever the label she's cultivating a rather disturbing online persona. I'm inclined to agree with @moins that she's using IG as a platform for validation and attention--and if she truly is eating disordered, developing her brand around being extremely skinny will make recovery exponentially more difficult. Not that being skinny itself should prompt ED accusations, but her seemingly pathological need to document her body, diet, and workout regime online does.

    I forgot that her height had already been mentioned when I screenshotted this but then as I was reading I came across ‘not thin enough.’

    Lexi, if you’re reading this (which you probably are), you are absolutely by no means ‘not thin enough.’ You’re thinner than a good proportion of runway models, let alone those in your own range of modelling. Please please please don’t believe whatever’s telling you that you’re fat/not thin because they’re lying :(

    She looks so tall, I’m surprised she’s only 5,8... but the way she says she’s not thin enough... not okay..:(

    Yeah honestly I think we should give this thread a break. Her stories give me tumblr ana page vibes and I don’t want us giving her attention and praising her body/ just even posting her body here to give her more reasons to get skinnier. (I am NOT accusing her of anorexia, but her stories are worrying and sad, and based off of everyone elses replies to this thread, a lot of us agree.)
