A Routine That Works

Sneaky_strong's routine includes running between 5-10k three times a week and doing yoga 5-6 times a week. She has also incorporated HIIT routines in her mornings to boost her metabolism. Through her routine, she has been able to lose 25 pounds in 6 months and significantly improve her health and lifestyle.

Short and Fast Weight Gain

Being a short person, Sneaky_strong found losing weight a challenge. She says that she gained the majority of the weight she lost in only about 3-4 months. But with determination, a healthy lifestyle, and regular exercise, she was able to overcome the challenge.


Sneaky_strong's journey shows that with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise, weight loss is possible. She inspires us to try things out for ourselves and make a lifestyle change for the better. Remember, everyone's journey is unique; we must find what works for us and never give up on achieving our health goals.
