The 37-year old "Biggest Loser" star has been a fan favorite on "Days of Our Lives" since she was just 16-years old. Sweeney has been juggling the daytime soap and her role on "Biggest Loser" for seven years now.

Allison Sweeney made her announcement to leave "Days of Our Lives" while appearing as a guest on "The Ellen Degeneres Show." She told Ellen that she would like to spend more time with her children. That is reasonable considering she has been working two shows now for the past seven years.

Sweeney has also said she is working on a book and might do some directing. Mostly though, she looks forward to having more time with her husband and children.
