novels where protagonist gets in shape

I'm looking for novels where the protagonist loses weight / gets fit. This doesn't need to be the central thing in the book, but while the protagonist saves the world from the zombie apocalypse, finds true love or destroys the ring in the fires of Mordor, can s/he also get in shape?

I've found it's easier for me to overcome the odds if I'm currently reading about somebody who is doing what I want to do.
I have an aversion for books with depressing endings, but otherwise I'll read pretty much anything: YA, contemporary, historical, romance, fantasy, scifi, mystery
