Brad Moen lost 27lbs in one month and found "himself".
Mark and I have known Brad for a few years as he is one of our business partners with another amazing story that had to be shared!
WHY is his story so special? Because all too often we hear about abuse from men and women all over the world, either sexual, physical or emotional - and this abuse is holding so many people back from achieving their dreams. We need to talk about these experiences and realize that abuse did not just happen to us, but it has happened to a majority of the population. We aren't the only ones who experienced this pain. Way too many others have also. The choice is ours, drown in our own pain, or use that pain to change the world and help others.
So why did we ask Brad to document his story for you, our fans? Because Brad's story is full of pain, yet he still perseveres to achieve freedom for himself and his family. He is a farm boy who didn't have much, but he always had a DREAM for himself and his family. His story is like so many others: abuse, pain, and not enough love. So imagine our joy when we heard about his amazing weight loss and how that loss helped him find "himself". Its amazing how losing significant amounts of weight can help you find your true self.
Brad lost a very significant amount of weight, gained his health back, and made the decision to share his journey to help others. SHARING IS CARING and that is exactly how Brad earned the very prestigious TOP 10 CUSTOMER ENROLLER in the WORLD. He shared his "secret" so that he could help others!
A CHILDHOOD OF PAIN
For those who do not know me, my name is Bradley Moen and I’m from Rose Valley, Saskatchewan, Canada, population 300! Yes, I'm a small town farm boy with a dream. Stick with me to see how dreams really can come true.
In my younger years of life, I lived in what most people would call, HELL. I was raised by my loving and caring mother who worked very hard to raise myself and my two siblings. My parents split up when I was young; my dad was an alcoholic and was one of the meanest people I ever knew. While other children were protected and loved, my dad yelled at us and spanked us with leather belts with regular beatings.
At 16, I wasn’t doing well in school, so I moved to Grande Prairie, Alberta to start working. I worked various odd jobs, trying to make a living and was still getting knocked down by people and struggling to make something of myself and get ahead.
At 29, I bought my first semi to escape! At 31, I bought a brand new Peterbuilt and I worked by ass off day and night from the ice roads in Canada, in the winter, to USA, the rest of the year, trying to make a living and to get ahead of the game, so I didn’t have to worry about money, life and the problems that I left behind. This meant I was was away from my family and friends for two years straight - that was very difficult for me!
With my semi and trailers just about paid for I continued to work hard, then I found myself in a very dark place when I was owed over $80,000 and the people who hired me refused to pay. I had to sell my truck and trailers and declare bankruptcy. I was ashamed and embarrassed and in a deep dark place. I was depressed.
At 36, my credit rating didn’t exist, and I got by on loans and struggled. I just knew something good must be coming.
JOURNEY, A NEW BEGINNING
Good things started happening and I met someone who finally wanted to be with me. March 6, 2014, was one of the best days of my life, my son Journey Malachite Moen was born. From that day on, I knew that Journey and I would be inseparable. It took me 38 years to finally get something that would be one of the best things in my life.
February 21,2017, Journey and I were at home together when I was doing the dishes and clipping my hair with the buzz cutters, when I started to break out in a sweat. I stopped what I was doing to sit on the edge of the couch to take a break and watch TV with my 3 year old son. I felt a pain in my chest and collapsed on the floor. I still don’t know how long I was out for, but when I came to, Journey was sitting right beside me.I phoned my good friend Carey, he came over and called an ambulance. My suspicion was correct, I had a major heart attack. My heart was only beating 38 beats per min. I was sent to Saskatoon and had 3 stints put in.
That day was one of the worst days of my life, not knowing if I was going to be here to see anyone again. I was a given more time! WHEW!
I wanted to give my family some memories and decided to go on a trip for two months this summer, camping all over Alberta and British Columbia. This was an amazing experience for our family - so many good times and good laughs.
Then last August, I was dealt another hard blow when my partner and I decided to go our separate ways. So much for Journey and I being inseparable. I was devastated. I now get to see him half time but there isn’t a minute of the day that I don’t think about him. Of course, given my health, I always wonder, how much time do I have with him?
MY HEART ATTACK WAS A WARNING
I was overweight and after my heart attack, my doctor told me, if I don’t get into better shape, and get rid of the stress in my life, that he only gave me five years to live, I was 282lbs in March, so I started drinking the IASO TEA on September 27 and in one month of not over eating and detoxing, I lost 27lbs and I lost a good chunk of my belly.
Now, my health has become my passion. I’m more passionate than ever about working my NuCerity business and doing things my family and friends told me not to do, they said, get out of it, you won’t be successful. I’m doing it anyway. Im doing my thing without negativity and I’m here to tell you a few things.
NUCERITY & IASO TEA - MY PASSION, MY VISION
I'm happy and getting into shape and things are looking great. I just ranked second in the world in my business. I leave you on those thoughts.
Know matter how many times, the world wants to knock you down and destroy your life, just get back up and fight back because you are the only one that can do it. No matter what anyone else says, I WILL SUCCEED.
This is WHY I joined NuCerity!
I don’t want my son to experience the pain I had to. He is my WHY!
