Soleil Moon Frye looks better than ever!
The 40-year-old actress is celebrating the new year by showing off her 26-pound weight loss in a series of stunning new photos. Soleil shed the excess weight with Nutrisystem after welcoming Baby No. 4, son Story, in May 2016.
“I feel amazing. I have been so fortunate to be blessed with four beautiful children. I want to be an active part of their lives and make sure that they see me taking care of myself,” the Punky Brewster star said in a new interview.

“After I had Story, I turned to my friends at Nutrisystem to help me lose the baby weight and it worked once again!” Soleil added. The proud mom previously joined the weight loss program in 2014 after giving birth to her third child, son Lyric.
In addition to Story, 8 months, and Lyric, 2, Soleil and her husband, film producer Jason Goldberg, 44, are also parents to two older daughters, Poet, 11, and Jagger, 8.
“We’re a family, we eat together, we play together. After each pregnancy, I lost weight the healthy way. I need to lead by example. I’m not going to starve myself in front of my kids,” she said.
“I’ve said before that I don’t feel like [moms] should feel forced to do something or forced to get back in shape immediately [after having a baby],” Soleil continued.
“And I didn’t [feel pressure]. I spent that much needed time with Story before I even thought about getting my body back,” she said. “It’s different for everyone. All I can say is find something that works for you. Nutrisystem worked for me.”
“I always try to encourage moms to love themselves. I think it’s important to be empowered. We put everything into loving and supporting our kids, but we still have ourselves,” Soleil added. “I hope that I can inspire other mothers to make time for themselves and take the steps toward living a happier, healthier life.”
