You might have heard about the new TLC show, Unpolished, right? Well, for those who don’t, it’s a show about a salon, Salone Martone, that’s basically run by sisters, Lexi Martone and Bria Martone. One of the sisters, Lexi Martone, recently soared to fame for her weight loss story.
Martone was overweight since her childhood days, but she couldn’t lose her body fat. But, with her rising interest in art, her weight started to decrease, and self-esteem started to increase. Now, she is slimmer than ever.
But, how did she lose all that weight, and what more has she revealed about her life? Let’s find out!
Lexi Martone’s Weight Loss and Art
If you’re thinking why we included art in this topic then, it’s because it’s the major reason, Lexi Martone lost all that weight! According to Soap Dirt, she lost as much as 100 lbs or 45.3 kg of body fat in her early days.
The Unpolished star had always had a fitness problem, she was always thicky-thick. Not only that, but the lady also had no confidence in herself. While she was a teenager, she used to stay away from her friends and even hide at times. She hated herself and her looks in pictures.

As we all know, Lexi is a nail artist and had an interest in it since her early days. So, she entered the competition, Next Top Nail Artist, that ranked the next top nail artist. Though she wasn’t able to win it, she became the runner-up for the competition. This surely changed the way she thought about herself, increasing her self-esteem like lightning.
Following this, everything changed for one of the Martone sisters. She changed her lifestyle, ate right, and worked out, to finally look, the doll she is now. Not only her health, but she also chose to turn her passion into a full-time job or in her case, business.
