Someone asked if you can have a heroine who loses weight without changing
fundamentally.

Agnes Nitt in Pratchett's Masquerade is obese. At the end of the book she
walks home to Lancre and in the process loses weight. But it is made very
clear that she is still a very large woman. The difference is that she is
now Fat and Fit.
