Catherine and Donald Wygal are a married couple from Los Angeles, California and are the co-hosts of the We Only Look Thin podcast. Having spent the first 18 years of marriage on a never ending roller coaster of co-dependent disordered eating, fad diets, secret eating, weight loss 

gimmicks and restrictive diets, these two finally got their health goals synced and sustainable in 2016 and have lost a combined 255 pounds. 

The pair started the We Only Look Thin podcast in 2018 as a way to share their experiences in overcoming co-dependent, disordered eating. With a light hearted message of incorporating sustainable changes and taking accountability for one’s choices instead of being victims of circumstance, Donald and Catherine make it clear that there is no “finish line” to weight loss. Their weekly podcast tackles sensitive topics such as secret eating, bulimia and weight regain, while also injecting a bit of comedy to the often serious subject of weight loss.
