I think that a blendShape for the intire body would be the best solution. You have the fat guy already... all you need to do is to re-model the fat guy into a thin one. But you canīt change the surface of course.

But first you can try to do something that is a lot easier. Simply try to put a squash deformer (or another non-linear deformer that suits you best) on your character. Do it directly into the body parts. Depending on the animation and your character design you could get a good result.
