Alison Sweeney shows off her weight loss in the new issue of Shape!

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.
