Christmas has been and gone and 2018 looms - bringing with it the pressure to lose the pounds.

But not everyone is planning to succumb to the annual pressure to hit the gym, writes The Daily Mail.

Overweight people have taken to the anonymous sharing app Whisper to reveal the often surprising reasons why they have no intention of trying to slim down.

One woman explained she didn't want to lose weight because she's afraid people would then put her career success down to being "pretty and skinny".
