Stories That Inspire Us

Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Tuesday, March 28, 2023, Suzanne Culberg.  Suzanne is an international mindset coach and speaker, and Nope Coach, who helps over-givers and people pleasers learn to say ‘No’ to others in a way that feels good, so that they can say ‘Yes’ to themselves.   Suzanne is also the Author of the book:  The Beginning is Sh*t / An Unapologetic Weight Loss Memoir.

Sometimes with every story that needs to be told, the beginning is certainly shit!  It’s how we cultivate our perceptions and expectations to where we were to where we are today is the magic of the journey!

As Suzanne mentioned, from a person’s point of view, we treat ourselves as the villain.  We set high expectations, perhaps have an all or nothing attitude and from the onset have already set ourselves up for failure.

Once Suzanne aligned herself and experienced momentum in her journey, she realized that whatever society or social norms dictated, that she was not willing to give her power away!

Her book is a heartfelt, very raw and authentic journey starting as early as age 4.  Now writing a memoir can really be quite a daunting task, but it was through this writing process where she shared many of her watershed moments through each part of her journey.  Those moments where she needed to find solace and comfort are the times where she shared her “appreciation”.  

Whether your journey or goal is not specific to weight loss per se, by reading Suzanne’s book with an open mind and heart, you will claim your story, solidify the power in your story and hopefully share it with others - I am so glad that Suzanne did!

Suzanne’s passion for helping women is fueled by her own experiences of over-giving, over-consuming, and over-doing everything. She’s on a mission to not only help women set boundaries for themselves but also to make boundaries normal. We should be saying ‘No’ more often. 

“NO” is a complete sentence and does not need any further explanation!


To connect with Suzanne further, please check out her website and various social media platforms:






This is certainly one book I wished I could have read when I was going through my own weight loss journey!
