Looks like her blog got deleted — was it flagged for pro-ed content or something?
View attachment 55952
They terminated my (old, personal) blog last year out of the blue as well. It was before the whole “omigod no female n*pples on this website ugggghhhh!!!!” controversy that happened, so I doubt it had anything to do with the number of times I reblogged Kate Moss’ tits (no shame btw). I’d never reblogged thinspo or anything remotely of that sort, although my ‘likes’ told a different story :nervous:. Always suspected that’s why they did it. She never publicly advocated for an ED, but it was mentioned several times and she had also posted numerous body check gifs where she looked almost emaciated. I never did either of those things so the terminations could be for completely unrelated reasons, and it doesn’t make sense to me why Tumblr would terminate random blogs and not actual pro ana thinspo ones, or even worse, fucking pedophiles or something.

RIP Lexi Almeida’s tumblr (?-2019) :nopity:

I understand they will delete a blog if a certain number of people report it/complain about it. Not saying that happened with your’s (unless perhaps you had a large number of followers/subscribers?) but it may explain why Lexi’s was deleted. Instagram will delete certain photos even if only one person reports it...:rolleyes:

Don’t really get the caption?

View attachment 56428
I think she’s referring to her self as a fat girl but what I don’t understand is how deep must her body dysmorphia be to not clearly see she’s much thinner than this girl. I scrolled through her old tumblr before it was deactivated and it was nothing but body checks and answering food related asks. I mean there were several red flags with her constantly calling herself thick and too big so I’m more surprised at how long it took tumblr to take her account down considering they’ve been taking down thinspo pages at a much more accelerated rate these days. Her entire essence worries me to a point of discomfort. I really do think her thread should be inactive as it’s quite clear she needs helps. And her offense and surprise to tumblr replying to her to get help is downright wild. I mean any skinny girl knows that a corporation like tumblr is going to verbalize some concern with a model (public figure) whom is giving advice to girls that falls into pro ana behavior. She should not even be remotely surprised she was taken down if anything she should be surprised with how long she lasted.

After a scroll through her new page I truly have no words to express my discomfort. A bmi below 15 aided with health issues and her level of body dysmorphia is at a point where I’m surprised her agencies are still booking her and not getting her some help.

She means she has a massive girl crush on her. She’s not calling herself fat (in this instance at least lol)

It’s definitely not that deep. She just means that she has a big (re: fat) girl crush on Devon. I’ll admit I habitually use the word ‘fat’ in replacement for big/huge/excessive when talking casually and I always have to backtrack and clarify that, no, I don’t think that neither myself, yourself nor whatever inanimate object/emotion I’m discussing is fat, per se, it’s just a shitty expression :nervous:

My sincere apologies! I know she calls herself fat and huge all over her media so I assumed that’s what she meant my bad! I do still think she needs help it’s a shame because her body looks so good now but knowing where her mindset is at I can’t seem to feel comfortable using her as thinspo or supporting her behavior. 😔

so i was scrolling through her new tumblr and she flat out said she has an ed... i was pretty surprised she would just expose herself like that, wouldn’t it be hurtful for her career?
someone also asked if she wanted to recover and she answered treatment centers basically took her money and made her fat.
anyways, i do hope she gets the help she needs.

It looks like she doesn't want to get better, which is sad, but the reality for the disorder. Some girls know they're sick and they're destroying themselves, and accept that. It would probably take her being blacklisted from the industry before she even considered recovering.

I can understand, not from ED point, but from a mental illness recovery one, the fear of getting better, because for a lot of mentally ill people, your disorder is a huge part of your personality, and you don't know who you are without it. Not saying this is the case for her, but she clearly does recognise how severely unwell she is. The biggest support system in the world won't do shit if you don't want to get better.

I hope this made sense; I'm exhausted so my words are all over the place.

yes definitely! i also think the fact she went to treatment centres that didn’t cure her but made her ”get fat ” makes her think she can find an alternate way of treating her ed. this bad experience combined with the fact she used to be actually chubby, to say the least before her weight loss makes me worried she’ll be able to recover...

I feel the need to backtrack quite a bit on my earlier statement. Besides being wrong about the intention of her wording seeing that she’s publicly stated she has an ED I feel like an absolutely insensitive asshole for my aggression earlier. What I was trying to express was that at a BMI of >15 and unable to accept oneself as thin is ED behavior and to be giving out advice and tips on tumblr isn’t the best idea not even for the sake of health but also for the sake of image. In our modern day media outlets would have a field day with Lexi’s old tumblr account and some of her new account. (She should take it getting deleted as a blessing in disguise; But I am sorry she lost a ton of unsaved content 😔) I truly do believe with her face and body she has potiential to rise and if she were to become a more prominent name in the industry I’m sure her old account would have really took a hit on her image. I think for her own sake she should keep the outlets that she’d like to vent on private. I understand that her straightforwardness can seem like a breath of fresh air and quite genuine but I don’t think it’s worth possibly compromising an Individuals reputation. With that being said I feel like such an asshole for my previous statement I do understand completely why she’s scared to seek treatment. Most facilities are going make you gain weight until your BMI hits at least 18. As a model I can’t even imagine how terrifying that would be especially considering how amazing she looks now. I wish her the best of luck seeking therapy and I hope that it’s successful for her!

So now she's giving "tips" to wannarexics on tumblr, which I find really gross. Can her agency force her to delete it again??

I’ve literally had a photo of me kickboxing that I liked but didn’t post because of my ribs/spine and knowing that appearing in any way disordered could cost me work or get backlash. Meanwhile she’s over here basically running a pro Ana blog with apparently no consequences

New on her private account.
The message isn't wrong but she greatly fails on the delivery. That's maybe why people don't take her seriously and why her bigger audience are proana teens on tumblr.

Such a shame cause her body is amazing.

Just to clarify, she mentioned in the comments that this photo is from when she was 15 pounds heavier. She also mentioned that her BMI is currently around 15 & she’s working toward 14

My bad I was too quick to post it! She commented an hour after I posted the screenshot here.

In that case she was looking good at BMI 15 and she knows it, otherwise she wouldn't have posted that body check.
Her body dysmorphia is so obvious, I wish she had a healthier mindset(?) so she could finally enjoy her well-earned body.
