Days of Our Lives' Alison Sweeney is out of the weight loss competition business.  Producers for NBC's The Biggest Loser announced Tuesday the popular actress/author/spokesperson is leaving the program after eight seasons.

Sweeney made her debut as the host of The Biggest Loser in 2007. She succeeded comedienne Caroline Rhea, who held the gig from 2004 to 2006.

Sweeney is no stranger to big career changes. In 2014, she shocked the daytime soap opera community by announcing she was leaving DAYS after 21 years. She returned briefly to the soap in 2015 to reprise her signature role as schemer-turned-heroine Sami Brady for the soap's 50th anniversary. Look for her to beginning airing again on DAYS later this year.
