Fox News reports that a woman's weight loss photo appears to have been deemed inappropriate for Facebook.

Marilyn McKenna of Washington State posted the image to her Facebook page. It shows her fitting both of her legs inside one leg of a pair of her old pants.

McKenna posted the photo to celebrate losing more than 100 pounds, but someone on Facebook poured cold water on her party.

The photo was removed, and Facebook reportedly told her that it violated the site's policy by promoting "idealized physical appearances."
