About Me

Well hello there!

Welcome to Weight Loss Travel Gains, where wellness meets wanderlust.  I’m Kalyn (@fitflyflournoy on all social media), a 28-year-old wine & travel enthusiast, anchored in the northeast of the United States.

Like 40% of Americans (according to the CDC), I struggled with obesity, trying and failing to lose weight for most of my life, until I finally found something that worked. In less than a year, I managed to lose 80lbs and now 5 years later, I’ve been able to maintain not only this weight loss, but the healthy habits built over time.

Since this weight loss transformation, I’ve managed to visit 30/50 US States and over 20 countries across 5 continents (and counting), feeding into this “new” narrative that black people travel, too!

Weight Loss Travel Gains aims to highlight both of these journeys, I want to showcase how to live an all-around healthy(ish) lifestyle, especially while on the go.. .Not only is my message to readers and followers, “if I did it, you can do it, too”, but that you can have fun & not break the bank in the process.


Why Weight Loss and Travel?

Weight Loss Travel Gains was initially built as an online journal to document my weight loss journey and way to publicly hold myself accountable. Read about my weight loss journey HERE. But since it’s initiation, it’s transformed (as has my body), to include my travel journey, sharing tips, recommendations, learnings and more across both passions.
