June 6, 2013 – Diane Ruhl, “Fat 2 Fit”

Suburban Acres Civic League Secretary and all-around great neighbor Diane Ruhl was featured in a recent Flagship (official newspaper of Navy Region Mid-Atlantic) article.  Diane won a local “Fat 2 Fit” training competition, losing 12% of her body weight.  Her trainer, Lacey Lee, won the Top Trainer competition due to Diane’s weight loss over the eight week contest.

Along the way Fat 2 Fit participants also helped local charities, including the Virginia Beach SPCA.  Diane & Lacey also earned the most points for this part of the competition, collecting cash donations and items needed by the SPCA.
