Letter From Afrah

Afrah AbdulRaheem

19 years old

First joined Six-K Club Saturday April 7th 2007

 

 

 

 

I

n the early ages of my life I was never happy with whom I am. I have always been overweight. I never saw myself thin or beautiful.

In school I was always called fat and this made life hard for me as a child. I was bullied because of my weight and children would always laugh at me. Furthermore in sports classes I was different than the other kids, I couldn’t jump, run, or even enjoy sports games because they were simply hard to do for a person my size.

 

When the weekend comes I would go out and enjoy myself with my friends for a good dinner but this makes it hard for me because passing by the tables to reach our table is annoying, yet in the cinema I would avoid sitting in the middle because I would get embarrassed by passing on the people and squashing their feet. I would rather stay at home.

I have always hated shopping because I couldn’t find anything looking good on me or anything that fits me. I also hated family gatherings because in our tradition we would sit and eat on the floor, however I would sit and think to myself “how would I get up again” I found it hard for me.

As an overweight child who grew up fat, I have always struggled with my weight and tried too many diets to lose weight and at once it seemed to me that nothing will work, until I have joined the Six-K Club. All the things that I hated have changed by my perception. The Six-K Club has changed my life I felt more comfortable with whom I am and had more confidence with what people thought of me. In the Six-K club I found motivation, inspiration and a goal for living a happy life as well as meeting new friends.

Since I first joined the Six-K Club a lot of things have changed. I have lost more than 20 kilos in that I have never lost before from my experience in diets. 

Six-K was not only a place to achieve my goal it was a place that was different to me, the wonderful people I meet, the respect I found and the care I got.

 

After everything else I would like to thank Jasem Al Zeraei for his success in building the Six-K Club and his support.

 

Come on people come and enjoy, get inspired, have fun and live a happy life with the www.Six-k.com and you will have the opportunity to listen to the real story live from Jasem Al Zeraei.

    Hi Afrah, I know what you mean! I read Jasem’s story only once and I still can’t get it out of my head! His pictures are his prove; what he’ve been through is tough and amazing! I’m so proud of him! And also you! You may not know me because I joined the 6K for other purpose and I’ve never joined any of your walks, but to know he’s out there helping individuals like yourself brings smile to my face 🙂
    In my case I always tell myself I can get in shape any time I want to, so I ignored exercises until last Sunday when I wore one of my tight tops and… I was shocked of how disgusting I look! And BAAM!!! I began exercising again! My body hurts a lot caus’ I haven’t done it in a long time but I’m happy of the feeling how my heart bumps!
    I just wanted to tell you that I know how you felt (we’re girls!) there’s pressure everywhere in our lives!

    Take care & good luck 🙂
