Soap fans and reality lovers might recognize the pretty face and svelte figure on the cover of the August issue ofSELF Magazine. Yep, that's none other than Days of Our Lives star and The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney, who dishes about how hosting Loser has helped her be a winner at keeping the pounds off. Here's a snippet on how Sweeney finally begin gaining control of her battle of the bulge back in 1999:
I put up and shut up.
"In my early 20s, I'd eat a tub of lowfat ice cream and be like, 'Why am I having weight problems?' Dave, my husband, whom I was dating then, finally said, 'Why do you complain? You're beautiful already, but if you want to do something about it, do it. You pursue your career, but you don't attack your weight.' It was loving but an eye-opener. That was when I turned things around."
Wait a sec...So if it says lowfat, I can't eat the whole carton of ice cream?! Maybe I need to go on one of those fat porn shows? Check out more of Sweeney's interview at SELF!
