Life Measured in Hours

My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.

A candle.

The candle has to be lit for this to work, so the answer should be a lit candle. It has to be a lit candle because a candle by itself can last for years, and wind would not be an enemy heat would.
