Well hello there! Welcome to Weight Loss Travel Gains. I’m Kalyn (@fitflyflournoy on all social media), a 27-year-old sales professional, residing in the northeast of the United States. Through a lot of hard work and trial & error, I lost 80lbs, finally overcoming an almost lifelong struggle with my weight. Another fun fact: over the past 6 years, I’ve visited 20+ countries and counting, allowing myself to fully succumb to my wanderlust.
Why Weight Loss and Travel?
I started Weight Loss Travel Gains as an outlet for myself during my weight loss journey and as a way to publicly hold myself accountable. Read about that journey HERE. Along the way, my love for travel found itself intertwined with this tango, as I gained the confidence to pursue other dreams once my weight loss goals were achieved. It was important for me to integrate both of these new lifestyle changes into all areas and aspects of everyday life, which led to the transformation of my blog.
After naturally losing 80lbs and sustaining this weight loss for 5+ years, I wanted to showcase how to live an all-around healthy(ish) lifestyle, especially while on the go. I realized that these were two very real and very important goals for many people out there, and wanted to share everything I learned from tips, product recommendations, itineraries, workout plans, and more. After losing 80lbs and traveling across 5 continents, I don’t consider myself an expert, but I do aim to be a resource.

It’s so important that we stay active, not just to achieve a certain physique, but to stay in good health and build long-lasting habits that we can maintain for years to come. To both use my platform and combine my fitness goals and passion for travel, I created this initiative, Around the World in 10,000 Steps, encouraging small or large acts of physical activity while on vacation.
