The ‘Biggest Loser’ host Alison Sweeney showed off her amazing body in the new issue of Shape Magazine!
The 36-year-old mother of two wore a small red bikini on the cover, showing off her abs!
At the height of her weight, the ‘Days of Our Lives’ actress was a size 12, back in 1998. Since then, she has lost 30 pounds. According to the magazine, a photo shoot last year inspired her to keep in shape.
The mother of eight-year-old Ben and four-year-old Megan also revealed that she finished a marathon, four half marathons and a triathlon in the past year.
The hardest part of the triathlon was getting over her fear of the open water.
‘Sure, I practiced in my pool for half an hour twice a week,’ Alison said, ‘but that didn’t prepare me for when I first stepped in the ocean. I was convinced I’d get eaten by a shark!’
She completed the event without a shark incident and already is training for another this fall.
Alison told the magazine the sporting challenges have added meaning to her workouts.
‘When I have a goal, like that race, and then actually cross the finish line, it’s so satisfying,’ she said.The 20-year soap opera veteran already has published The Mommy Diet guide for expecting mothers and told Shape she’s branched out into fiction.
