Hi! I'm Lex. I'm an 18 year-old college student in Montana studying biology, chemistry, and a bit of psychology too.

I'm short- about 162 cm or 5'3.8". My highest weight was in 2009 when I peaked at 155 lbs after losing a lot of weight in 2008- and then falling to depression and gaining it all back. I'm good now though, and since then (when I joined SparkTeens), I've been living a pretty healthy- and happy- lifestyle. I hover around 125-130 lbs, with a goal of getting that down to 115-120 lbs (aiming for 117) and then just maintaining a healthy lifestyle and getting fit and gaining some muscle mass.

I have a great little sister (Liv), three other older siblings, wonderful parents, and the world's most amazing boyfriend, Rob, who someday I hope to/will spend my forever with.

I don't believe I need to be thin to be happy, confident, or amazing. Neither should you. I'm doing this just because I like treating my body well.

I post a TON of stuff on my fitblr (it's a blog about fitness and health and stuff) which is here (I think you need to copy/paste?):
http://spinning-my-spokes.tumblr.com
On there will be more of my updates and you can search for stuff and look at recipes and find workout ideas if you're ever wanting something new.

I'm religious and proud to be LDS. This isn't going to change. Neither will my political convictions (libertarian). Let's just not talk about them, okay?

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. In answer to your question/concern, yes. I have diastolic heart failure and can get build-up of fluid quite easily, so my doctor gave me a range for my sodium intake of 1,300--2,000. That particular day actually was well below my normal range, but that happens very rarely. I have routine bloodwork done every couple of months so my doctor can monitor my levels.

    Have a great weekend!

    I must be lucky then, because no one comments on my eating habits. It's none of their business what I eat, and the people around me seem to know that.

    I'm with CarolJean..and please keep in mind that some people's obesity isn't always about eating, it can also be about their DNA or an illness.

    I read your response to the blog about obesity being acceptable for discriminatory remarks. While there is validity in your statement that people "choose" to be fat, it is not quite that simple. First food can be an addiction fo some, but unlike other addictions, we cannot completely avoid food. Secondly, many, if not most, obese people are emotional eaters...eating to deal with abuse, emotional, physical, spiritual.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday. I feel even worse today. It's hard to feel this bad and have an 8 hour day to complete.
