About Me

Hi, I’m Kalyn.
27-Year-Old, Pittsburgh, Pa Native!


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. Along the way, my love for travel found itself intertwined with this weight loss journey. It was important for me to integrate both of these new lifestyle changes into all areas and aspects of everyday life.

For some crazy reason, people started to read my stories and seek my advice and this encouraged me to be more intentional with my posts, putting out content that was thorough and packed with helpful information.

Whether you are here to find tips or inspiration for your own weight loss journey or want advice on planning your next getaway, 80 lbs. down and 20 countries in, I plan to share my “expertise”, my mistakes, and any known secrets.


I want people to see the successes, the failures, the struggles, and the ups and downs that accompany natural weight loss. It’s not easy but hopefully, my story will be motivation.


I also want to encourage people to travel and explore the world. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, I did not grow up immersed in diversity, living in a very black and white city. I realized how limiting it can be when you’re not able to learn from others, listen to people’s stories, or experience new cultures. I also learned that traveling can be attainable and affordable if planned efficiently. Here, in this blog, I will share the fun, the embarrassing, and the very real stories of my attempts to see the world on a budget.
