It's so hard to say goodbye.
Following last month's announcement that she was leaving The Biggest Loser after hosting the weight loss game show for eight years, Alison Sweeney admits she got a little emotional.
"Just thinking about the response I've gotten from fans and former contestants makes me tear up," Sweeney tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week's issue. "It's been an amazing run. I'm so proud."

Though there have been rumors of an all-celebrity version of The Biggest Loser for years, the show's on-camera medical consultant, Dr. Robert Huzienga, says a couple familiar faces will definitely be popping up on the weight-loss show's upcoming 17th season.
"We have two celebrity additions," Huzienga (known on the show as "Dr. H") told PEOPLE exclusively at The Brent Shapiro Foundation Summer Spectacular in Beverly Hills on Saturday. "I'll probably get chastised by NBC publicity, but we have two nugget surprises in there."
Filming began last week, but Huzienga, who is also an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, can't reveal the identity of these celebrities. However, he promised the stars are just as in it to win it as everyone else.

Ali Vincent is off the market!
The first female winner of The Biggest Loser married her girlfriend, Jennifer Krusing, on Tuesday and shared the happy memories on her Facebook page.
"Life doesn't get better than this," she captioned a photo of herself hoisting her bouquet in the air, all smiles as she holds hands with her new wife.
Vincent, 40, wore a lace, tea-length gown for the ceremony, showing off the still-svelte figure she worked so hard to attain seven years ago in season 5 of the reality weight-loss competition, shedding 112 lbs. to earn the grand prize of $250,000.
