I remember reading a while ago about the different approach to obesity in the US -- not all are focussing on getting people healthier -- there's a growing group of activists embracing it and fighting for the rights of obese people in a similar way that people campaigned for the rights of people with a disability. The result is cars with wider seats, bigger couches, bigger airline seats, bigger toilets and toilet cubicles etc. I imagine in the near future public buildings and government services (including public hospitals) will be facing the Equal Opportunity Commission if they don't adequately accommodate the obese community.
As the levels of obesity continue to rise (and not just in the States), they will be a real political force.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
