- CBS 5 AZ - KPHO: A woman posted on Facebook a photo of herself getting into one leg of size 20 pants she used to
A woman posted on Facebook a photo of herself getting into one leg of size 20 pants she used to wear to illustrate her dramatic weight loss. But Facebook asked her to remove the photo on the grounds it violates Facebook's policy about "promoting idealized physical appearances."
What do you think of the photo and Facebook's policy? (Source: KING/CNN)
(Type: photo | Published: 2014-01-13T14:43:28+0000)
[lori kay] - Really? But posting half-naked "fitness" pictures is OK??
[michelle carlson lauchner] - That's ridiculous! Unless she posted "fat-shaming" comments with her pic, she ought to be able to post a picture of something she's done that she's proud of! Get a grip FB!
[candice spencer] - I think their policy is absolutely ridiculous! Half naked girls pop up on my news feed all the time!, How is that not "promoting idealized physical appearances"? They don't do anything about the half naked girls on my news feed but they will take down a picture of a woman who is proud of her weightless journey?? It's unbelievable.
[kendall slotte] - That's ridiculous. She's an inspiration for a healthier lifestyle.
[terri hutflesz] - I was curious so I did a little research.....this is not a personal FB page it is a public page you can follow. It kicks you to her weight loss web-page. She is an author, in reality this is a weight loss advertisement. I would support it 100% if it was a friend proud of their awesome accomplishment but it's not!
[lauren rose] - Oh but FB will ALLOW a picture of a kitten in a blender hu? Congrats to this woman and really FACEBOOK ?????
[linda anderson messervy] - Somebody probably reported her post to facebook as offensive. Probably because they only wish they could accomplish this.
[jessie reed] - This has to be a joke. Chicks can post near naked photos but a woman proud of losing weight cant publicly celebrate it with a classy photo.
[rebecca davis] - Maybe they should ask people to remove their nude,1/2 nude photos, promotes sex, porn, how woman should look, attracts men who abuse, rape and more. Think facebook needs to review their priorities,
[vanessa gonzales] - Smh Facebook, but we allow fb accounts to post woman in their underwear????
[rebecca kay] - I once reported a video of a man physically abusing a little boy, but facebook didn't see anything wrong with it. THIS, on the other hand, they find offensive??? I'm thinking someone needs to either fire the person who wrote the photo policy or fire the person making the decisions on what is offensive and what isn't!
[kathleen hudson] - FB get a grip... you allow half naked people, hate slurs and a ton of thers garbage in casino ads and itirating games but someone shares their success and you go crazy on them making them a bad person.........
[scott wright] - This is what happens when bleeding hearts and liberal dictate what we can say and do. Eventually everything is offensive
[darlene zimmerman morris] - oh, but if it's Miley Cyrus or all the malfunction wardrobe incidents, it's OK for the press...smh
[cathy o'neil dixon] - But they don't mind young women posting all those half naked selfies with duck lips or half naked men with six pack abs?
[tom ethington az] - They don't ban those morphed-duck mouth-Walmartian photos. Perhaps Facebook should present definitions and examples.
[dan parcell] - As I read this I see a advertisement to the right of this feed posted by FB of a bikini clad Danica Patrick....... She is a race car driver not a bikini model! What's up with this? I guess if FB gets paid to post it, that's different!
[elana wight] - So I can see vulgarity and nudity on FB, but a woman can't be fully clothed showing how HEALTHY she is now? Ludicrous!
[chevy silverado] - Must have made someone working at Facebook a bit jealous.
[sherry curtis-smith] - FB if you are so concerned, how about banning porn shots from FB. Little girls showing off to much skin. Racist remarks, etc. Instead you take something positive and turn it into a negative. Shame on you.
[elizabeth lambert] - Maybe they need to remove all of the booty shot pages then. I found this to be encouraging.
[peter mahigian] - But Facebook doesn't mind the use of "nigga" in peoples' posts when I've reported it. Shame on Facebook. I apologize for the term used above...just a quote.
[shelley witherspoon cheatham] - The fact that fb is going to say this woman and this picture violates ANYTHING, is nuts!! Apparently they haven't seen all the things I see on there daily.
What a joke!!
[andrea pederson] - Like photo. Think Facebook policy is either poorly written or interpreted. She should make two skirts out of her old jeans.
[lori squires] - Wow. They want this picture removed but when I tried to report a flat out disgusting pornographic picture and try to get it removed, FB's response was that they basically weren't going to do anything about it and to take it up with the page owner. Yeah because that will really get me somewhere! Get real.
But kudos to this lady on the weight loss! That is amazing!
[helen dontforgettobringatowel havens] - I hate fb and would drop it in a hot second if there was a competitor.
[lynn-judy pemberton yoder] - There is a picture of a totally naked woman on my FB page yesterday---called a "cougar in a tree" That is the kind of thing that should not be on FB. Not personal accomplishments.
[chris echerivel] - I'm never losing weight again! Ever!!! Ha ha...
[julie graham] - Idealized body images? Have they *seen* the pics all over Facebook? ?
[sue lux darrow] - Come on FB.....are you really serious about this"" ???? With all the trashy pics on FB that you allow and you are against someone proud of their accomplishment? Stupid!!!!
[lillian cardona-cowen] - Thanks Terri Hutflesz for the research. According to Terri this is not a personal FB page. It's a public page you can follow. It kicks you to her weight loss web-page being used to advertise a product and that is what facebook says cannot be done..If it was her personal page and she was just telling her friends about her accomplishments that would be fine but she is not.
[cristy eller] - Wow...she accomplished something so great and yet she is not allowed to share but others can wear tiny bikinis and show off much more?? Personally I'm very proud of this lady to get to where she is today. It is not offensive but inspiring.
[elizabeth denham] - I believe when someone out there creates a competitor for facebook, willing to remove the foul and keep the inspiring things, facebook will lose a decent portion of their users! Congrats to this woman for being able to lose weight AND be healthy!
[tedandmichelle harris] - Oh but if your taking selfies half dressed or even slightly dressed they will keep them up..tired of people and they doubLe standards.
[heather blase husar] - Are you kidding. Wow. Unbelievable. She should post 20 more.
[monica rae boyd williams] - She's proud of herself and she should be. Facebook and its crybaby liberal policies are freaking REDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[piff harris] - It so many worse pictures n videos on here give this woman n me a break I am very motivated by this n I'm just starting to use the gym membership I purchased to give myself greater health n sense of pride that I didn't have before so f Facebook and it's admin for being so rude n unpractical about a photo of weight lose!!
[cindy mawhinney] - Why complicate life...it's simply a picture of a person who did something healthy and positive in her life! Leave the picture be!
[lupita lopez] - After some of the stuff I see people post on FB, this is nothing!!!
[sherry curtis-smith] - Get real....this is to show you can lose weight. It is nothing but positive.
[lizeth karina bencomo] - That's funny because I've reported certain posts in a Facebook group because they were/are selling drugs which goes against their policy but I got a message back saying they didn't find anything wrong with the post. But someone posting a picture of themselves in an old pair of pants in too much? Wow.
[karen carlson] - Face book let's people put nude girls on here.at least she has clothes on!!
[cynthia lopez] - Wow.... I would rather see this amazing accomplishment than fb porn that they don't protect us from! Facebook needs to STOP Micro managing and actually stop the real issues on their website from happening like the actual photos that promote naked bodies male or female! Come on fb! Really!?
[belva woody perry] - She should be allowed to be proud of herself and be an inspiration to others.
[celestria hudson] - But supermodels with FB pages can post themselves half naked? Puleeze! Now that's promoting idealized appearances
[chris banks] - If it's an ad for weight loss products, take it off. If it's pride in an accomplishment - leave it on there. I lost 100 pounds and I'm proud to say it is all about better health - not my size...
[dorothy wildman aguilar] - I cant believe Facebook ask somebody to remove pictures of their weight lost but they allow pictures of half naked girls in bikini's
[sharon cochrane] - I lost 100+ pounds so far & have posted that info on fb. I did it to get healthy & therefore get off some meds. I'm sure she did it for the same reasons. She's proud of herself & she should be so why not post a picture. What about our right of free speech?
[denny harris] - Lets see ... This is not okay to post this. But posting vulgar, four letter profanity and half necked young girls are fine?
[ashley cruz] - So what about this advertisement that's always on fb!? Why not remove it and others like it?

[tisha s.hoover] - That's crazy she's proud of herself she shouldn't be criticized for the accomplishments but congrats to her she looks great.
[denise parra covarrubias] - There is worse stuff on FB. And they're focusing on this inspirational woman. Really?
[kelly hardy] - What a great accomplishment. She should be proud of herself and aloud to post this picture. It's her Facebook page.
[rachel perry gillaspy] - What about promoting good health and well-being!? Ridiculous!
[betsy horvath] - I think the news should do a bit of research BEFORE they write an article.
Facebook doesn't ask you to remove a photo. Photos are reported _to_ facebook, and if it's reported enough times, it's removed, not asked, it's removed.
There is no "promoting idealized physical appearances" policy that I could find.
The "adult products.........." violation is the option that people used to report the photo as inappropriate.
I personally think this is a publicity stunt, my opinion only. Her page went from a low number (you can see it starts with a 6 so it's either 6, 60+ or 600+) to over 2500.
[vicki piccola middleton] - Good for her! Not like she posed in something skimpy. She showed hard work pays off!
[melinda bernot edenfield] - If they are your photos and or photos of your friends that have allowed you to share their weight loss success, then they are not unrealistic results! You can't tell me that MY results were unrealistic if they actually happened to me! Just because I have a "Before and After" photo doesn't give them the right to delete it or threaten to delete my acct. Doesn't matter if its your personal page or your biz page. If you are in a weight loss, personal training, health coaching biz then so what? If they are fake photos that's different. AND losing weight doesn't mean you are promoting idealized physical appearances- personally I am promoting getting healthy, clean eating, exercise, stress reduction etc. Its bogus and BS!
[julie greg breneman] - more political correct BS, she should be able to be proud of her accomplishment
[moneke little] - Maybe they like naked pics of women more lol
[monica rae boyd williams] - We should share the hell out of this pic...I did!!!!!!!
[marisela don diego] - Congratulations !!! To her.
I totally disagree with Facebook Facebook let's people Facebook even has porn and Exedra but made this woman take her post off wow .
[corona xavier] - Jealous fat people! Hell I'm fat and that would encourage me. If she can do it I can do it!
[lynsi greer] - I have seen horrible videos continue to fly around on Facebook even after they have been reported and they asked her to remove this pic???? Ridiculous....
[travis slaughter] - Stupid. Plan stupid. People in the world cry over anything now a days. This country is full of weak people
[sharon smith mcchesney] - Sensorship comes to mind. There is nothing wrong with this photo. I have seen way worse on FB. Congratulations.
[jennifer d. worley barnett] - Congratulates to her that's just so awesome. Shame on Facebook
[patty rider-wright] - I guess they didn't see the naked photo of the girl hanging from a tree limb last week!! Ugg! Same on Facebook
[charlie pelayo] - Let her post a picture showing the success she's had! She's obviously worked hard for it!
[josie leonard] - I see nothing wrong with this pic.
[melyssa june goularte] - Really? There are people, thankfully none of which are friends of mine, which post 1/2 naked selfie pictures flaunting everything God gave them. So this woman did an incredible accomplishment. Why would FB pick on this positive accomplishment this gal achieved, while leaving the almost pornographic pictures other people post? How ridiculous. Kudos and way to go to this woman!
[desiree bembury] - OMG...are you kidding...she is an inspiration. ..FB needs to focus on the skank half naked pics with the porn type photos....or how about focusing on hackers and scammers....
[tara iwillsucceed trificana] - So people can post porn videos and women can post pictures of half naked bodies but someone who loses weight can't boast about it??? That makes Sense! -.-
[marna untiet] - Crazy. The woman is proud she lost weight, I applaud her. Get realistic. She just looks healthy. They should crack down on some of the nearly naked pictures I've seen that are suggestive of inappropriate sexual behavior.
[erika hartley] - Wait... Isn't Facebook where the "what's your excuse?" lady posted, or am I wrong. This is stupid.
[barbara kamekona] - I think a pic like this simply shows that change is possible if you want it bad enough
[julie hernandez] - She has accomplished a goal let her be and enjoy it and show it off....
[bruce morrow] - I find it an encouragement, Facebook is wrong again.
[sherrie barth] - but yet they let cyber bullying and people with accounts hacked stay on it and post whatever they want WTG face book. don't allow some one who has been working hard to lose weight post how they look now, face book has it's ideals backward. keep up the bad work face book
[teresa sharp kelly] - I don't think this is about "idealized physical appearances." This is about healthy living. However I can see how that could be blurred, but really this is just promoting healthy living and she's proud of her accomplishments. Great for her!!
[ladeana benson rendler] - I have no problem with the picture. I am proud of her!
[michael g kenny] - They have the time to check photos tell this woman to take this down when thousands of bullying pictures run on FB every day. Maybe thy are paying attention to the wrong thing. By the way who asked them to be my mommy?
[erika wildhaber] - Banning this photo when just this morning I saw a video where a woman is physically abusing an infant.
[elaine messer] - They meaning Facebook, allow swearing, cursing, objectional photos, pictures. But they won't allow a woman proud of her weight loss??? How hypocritical!!! What's wrong with her photo??? Just because she is proud and wants to let other women it can be done??? JERKS!!!
[h.l. gilmore] - I totally agree with Michelle Carlson Lauchner's comment. As a wearer of a size 20 pants, if I had lost enough weight to fit all of me into just one leg of my size 20 pants, I would be standing in the one leg wearing a bikini singing "If They Could See Me Now" at the top of my lungs in a video on You Tube. Get off your high horse FB ! There is plenty of other material you don't censor, that you ought to.
[brian lela] - Thank you so much Facebook for keeping our eyes safe from an amazing accomplishment
[katrina dobson] - More than likely, it was one of her "friends" that reported her picture.
[charlie okander] - Posting pictures with barely any clothes to show off tatoos or bodies is okay but this woman has clothes on is not Wake Up Facebook
[alicia portillo] - I was a size 20... Am now down to a 16 fit ... It's a HUGE milestone in my life so she should be proud and show it off
[kathy cornell] - Great photo but ridiculous to have to take down . There are other weight loss pics on here from various sites!
[shae ali] - Funny how they can say that when there are about a million ads on my timeline for some weightloss pill or program. Or I get sponsored posts of skinny women half naked showing off some "weight loss secret women are dying to discover." Way to go, double standards.
[michelle marie] - Serious?! For the amount of stuff I see on FB that should not be on there and they remove something like this. She should be proud of herself. She could've appealed it but who wants to go through that headache!
[jessica kallhoff] - Good for her!
Def disagree with Facebook.
[avis aspy truitt] - At least she didn't caption it "what's your excuse"
[stacey miaczynski kloszewski] - Personally I think she had a lot to be proud of. She should be able to post it. That's a huge accomplishment.
[chris hill] - I say let her be proud of her accomplishment.
[jamie morse] - What a bunch of b.s.!
[mimi joi cooper] - Lazy fat people hating on her for loosing weight so they complain, get off Facebook and exercise and you won't have to feel so bad about looking at a woman who lost her weight!
[jennelle layne] - I say that they need to stop letting food posts as well then, that is promoting obesity!
[maximilian colloquium sicarius] - "facebook asked her" = it was reported enough that the automation caused "facebook" to "ask her"
thus, again, people are fickle and cry about everything. good one, humanity.
[warren g. richards] - The community guidelines that are enforced or ignored seems to change with the wind and seems too dependent on who's moderating at any given time and also seems way too dependent on whether or not fb receives complaints and how many complaints --and who does the complaining.

[michella tsosie] - Wow. Hypocrisy at its finest.
[taunora abrahams] - Insane. She made a great accomplishment and she should be able to show it. I weigh over 200 lbs and I am working to get it off. It is no one's fault but mine. Boo hoo look at the thin lady no fair .. my feelings are hurt take it off because I as a 50 year old woman can't take it. Good grief!!
[peggy lee miller] - Really? Do they have an overweight person searching for weight-loss photos? This is a super picture!
[mike pagano] - Take this Facebook!!!!!!
[dawn m shelley buerger] - That is just PLAIN CRAZY OF FB!!!
[joseph house] - Welcome to the world of PC. She didn't like the way she was and did something about it. Being proud of her accomplishments she took this picture to share with her friends on Facebook. Facebook, not wanting to have those f** a** folks that are too lazy to get up and do something to be offended, removed the pic.
[dawn witt] - I think she should be proud. Why hide it? I'll tell you what, if I lost that amount of weight, they'd probably be asking me to remove photos too. Lol. Congrats to her.
[mick j. maroney] - The woman looks wonderful. We don't need any censorship by FB.
[mildred clark bryant] - I congratulate her!!!!!
[sabz kaotik] - wtf?! iv'e seen far worse pics being posted that have never been asked to remove.
[dann dykas] - This isn't idealizing physical appearance it's motivating healthy behavior.
[lucy chavez tanori] - Ok I lost 28 lbs in the course of 3mnts. So is FB councel gonna ban me now.
Lady I am PROUD of U.
[beverly celis mcvicker] - She's accomplished what may be the most difficult task in her life. She deserves to be proud and show the world. I've seen alot worse on facebook. Congratulations to you.
[brian lindsay] - lol what that means is some jealous tool reported the post as offensive and they took it down automatically so as not to offend others. This is the society we live in today, sad isn't it?
[natalie martinez] - This is so dumb. There are teenagers on FB that upload sexual content that could seriously be considered as borderline porn and this lady can't share her picture because it could offend someone? Wow.
[jeritha keithley- brown] - Bravo!!! This young woman should be proud of her accomplishment. Pooh Pooh on Facebook rules. I see stuff on here every day that violates those rules.
[laura wallace] - FB is being ridiculous! Great incentive for those attempting to lose weight - but, oh - FB allows near-naked photos all the time! Go figure!
[jane krim hall] - Well, when I get small enough to do this I will BE sure to post a pic! Ridiculous!
[heather baxter] - Way to go lady who can now HEALTHILY fit into a pant leg of her old pants. Facebook you suck!!
[ann riston] - FACEBOOK.....but the hell out!!! no one needs nor do we want your opinions!!!! this was created for our pleasure and to make YOU money.....go count your dollars and get your nose out of our business!!!! thank you!!!
[linda schuster] - Then they certainly need to censor some of the profile pics I've seen!
[tina trzaskowski] - This is really silly u have people on here saying she should or she shouldn't. That is okay as we all have our opinions but y should F.B. tell her it isn't appropriate? Really when I see boys with their pants half off??? People taking pictures of their blobs really???
[michelle talley] - She looks amazing! There is hope for anyone trying to shied pounds! "Promoting" Bwhahahah FB
[cheri lewis olds] - Yeah... But it's ok to post have nude chicks in bikinis making crude gestures and people smoking bongs....and dont get me started on the horrible language Ive seen posted. Alot of very inappropriate things that I wouldnt want my kids seeing. Good for her, she should be proud of her accomplishment. It takes alot of hard work and dedication.
[connie branson] - You know what, if some one has enough will power to stay on a diet, and lose weight, more power to them... Its hard work to lose weight, I know, because i've been there. I say to her be proud and pat yourself on the back...
[alysha webb] - They won't ban pics of 1/2 naked girls but they will ban a women who lost 1/2 of her body weight... (Or more). Way to go Facebook! Smh
[linda capps beaver] - Facebook lets all kinds of perverted pictures stay up! Facebook you are way off base here! She is only promoting her success!
[iron boss] - FB has the weirdest policies...there are times I can't even send msgs to my friends on my friend list. They need to get off their horses and see what's down below.
[alison renee heller] - There are before and after pictures all over Fb. I think it's a great accomplishment! I don't see Fb blocking pictures of people with their pants half down their crack, or those seen at Walmart pictures
[kristin ethington owens] - Absolutely ridiculous!! Im starting to realize that facebook is ran by a porn company.
[brenda webb] - Ridiculous! There are pages on Facebook that shouldn't be allowed and they do this to her..
[susan major] - She should be proud of what she did and FB is wrong as usual.
[jose cardenas] - Facebook full of sh*t
[robert prieto] - if this is the case they need to back track and have everyone take of there pixs showing they loss weight. come on now FB pump your breaks and chill
[kimberly imes adair] - As a really over weight person.. I do not find this offensive.. I am happy for her.. and hope one day I can do it too.. its hard for me to believe the photo was the reason for facebook saying that.. maybe the statement or words typed along with it had something to do with it.. I would have to of seen the whole post before I made that conclusion.. but I am thrilled she lost all that weight.. and she shouod be able to post that and be proud of her accomplishment..
[diana boyd] - Ridiculous. People do ridiculous "selfies" all the time.
[malissa buendia] - Wth! Thats ridiculous, but facebook is ok with people posting half naked/naked pics?!
[chuck taz young] - It violates the freedom of speach
[sher maffie] - And yet, her picture is being shared... on Facebook....
[jay lambert] - On 15AUG2001 I WEIGHED 540 POUNDS WITH A 70 INCH WAIST. I now weigh 272 pounds and have a 44 INCH WAIST.
Unfortunately, I do not have a before picture or a pair of my old pants.
If I did, I would post it and dare FACEBOOK to complain.
[susan fermenich] - I had one taken of my son and niece in my old pants went I lost 150 pounds. Fb needs to lay off this woman or anyone else that loses weight.
[barbara patton] - facebook sit down and shutup
[donna sutton] - Getting fed up of facebook
[charlene stevens] - Good for u girl! Congratulations!
[marlene keller] - I understand and support Facebook's intent but it is ludicrous to apply the policy to this photo, which conveys inspiration to people to lose weight for their health, longevity, confidence, and self esteem. She's not promoting the Barbie physical appearance, just an appearance of normal weight opposed to obesity. And I've seen a LOT of idealized appearance photos on FB that they apparently didn't ask anyone to remove. There is a discrepancy here that FB should give attention to.
[michelle phillips] - It is fine. Her accomplishment. Should be recognized
[jon kichen] - that's wrong for FB to tell her to remove it. That is an amazing achievement. I was excited 9 years ago when i lost 46 pounds.
[irv smith] - Hey Facebook, do you remember Myspace?
[gloria c. sizemore] - Facebook should allow it.
And say, Good Job. Well Done.
[trish peartree] - Give me a break, FB!! Geez ....

[bette huttenlocker] - How stupid is that?! I see a good thing in what she accomplished. She should be proud!
[crystal dingman] - Very proud of this woman!
[leslie crandall lewis] - She looks fabulous! Good for her! Why is it ok to post half naked women all over FB but this woman can't post this???? Stupefied.
[david hansen] - I think FB should rethink some of the photos of half naked folks that they allow!!! I have seen WAY too much of folks bodies and their pregnant bellies on FB, just because Demi More did it doesn't make it alright!!!!! Gma
[pat o'mealey] - FB needs to allow reviews of automated decisions that involve real people instead of just software that can get it wrong!
[margi martinez] - So half naked women is ok? Shame on you Facebook!
[patti colbath] - FB should get over themselves Good job girl
[stefanie colvin] - Ridiculous....the pic is motivational and inspiring
[brittany lemon] - If that is the case then every woman who is skinny needs to have their photos taken down.
[janet kreutzer moreland] - That is ridiculous.
[ed baum] - face book is out of bounds on this one
[joanne brakenbury-jameson] - Nothing wrong with this photo, I've seen worst pictures and videos on Facebook.
[louisa lopez moreno] - Is it because she's wearing clothes? Pics of both male and female with their "barely" there clothes, r on FB all the time. Don't get it.
[kimberly wall] - I think it is inspiring and I say good for her.
[evelyn moore] - I don't see anything wrong with it. Like Lizeth Karina Bencomo I also reported sexually explicit pictures and I got a message saying the same thing. FB please make up your mind.
[donna sersig] - ABSOLUTELY.....She IS promoting idealized physical appearance! Isn't THAT the idea....to give others inspiration & hope? Get real Facebook!
[jodi o'connor] - Right on Skinny girl - be proud
[janet paxson] - It is not an "idealized" physical appearance. It is an actual physical appearance of a woman who made a change for a healthier lifestyle and is proud of her accomplishment.
[ruth ann franks] - Proud of her! Facebook is lame!
[charmaine contreras] - Congrats to her!"
[ken boontjer] - What she accomplished should be celebrated, not shamed.
[esther niner] - It should help people who need to get healthy and lose weight what can be accomplished. It should be encouraging! Being healthy is too idealistic?! Come on, Facebook!
[liane andrews] - I think that she looks amazing. She's not promoting any specific diet program. If anything she promotes an ideal weight for her body frame. Her previous size was not healthy and if not so, at least borderline obese. Is Facebook concerned about offending obese unhealthy individuals? I say "To bad!"
[cathy colter] - I think it is an. Inspiring pic and all the hard work she has done what is the difference in this and before and after shots
[jennifer bouchard] - She is posting a fully clothed pic of herself and her accomplishment... I would have responded to the Facebook people and said, "when you remove the naked and half naked girls and guys showing off their bikini bodies and abs in their underwear, I'll remove my fully clothed body, but until then F you!"
[karen elms] - So how are you able to post the same picture then
[llissel milton] - Stupid what about all the facebook accounts of half naked girls? How about those? What do they promote?
[kat barnett] - Then I guess they should remove all the hot Italian girls Facebook photos as well and all the other half naked pictures of women they allow... What a joke.
[monica c henderson] - I think it's a great accomplishment and I would have done the same thing! Good for her!
[babby magallanes] - What about the ppl that are half naked ? Is that apropied ? Loosing weight is not showing off it might just give hope to some of us that are in the same proses . Good for her congrats
[norma lopez] - Shame on Facebook! How many naked pictures have been allow on? When I asked for one to be removed you simply told me to block or unfriend the person, why couldn't the same go for her picture?
[wendi dunn] - Sounds like it hit a nerve with someone there, I think it shows no matter your weight or age if you have the motivation to do it you can get it done.
[carole allen albin] - Um then they should mark everyone who posts weight loss ads! So silly!
[tracie dillard] - Oh but they let naked pictures post.
[dawn robertson luptak] - Facebook is kind of weird in how it polices.
[dottie rohan] - what about the pic that was on my page yesterday of a VERY heavyset woman with a skippy top on and one of her nipples showing. I deleted that one myself. there is nothing wrong with this pic
[jeff slade] - I don't see anything wrong with the photo. She's making a good point.
[randy drake] - As someone with a weight problem, I find this encouraging. Losing weight is one of, if not the hardest things I've had to do in life. More power to her.
[paul bloch] - I don't believe FB would ask her to remove this picture.....check you source
[candace greene] - But facebook will allow the cartel page that shows picture of murdered people guns and drugs. I've been trying for a year to havd the take it down.
[shawn akerson] - When "Fat Linda's" unite it's amazing what they can do to deny others any self satisfaction. Better to hide proof that people can change for the better than to admit you don't have the willpower to make that change to yourself.
[becky worley harden] - Ridiculous! Have you seen the stuff posted on Facebook?
[stephanie quintero] - Was someone jealous and reported her picture? She should be proud of the fact she worked so hard to lose the weight! Now she is healthy. What is wrong with that?
[judithanne westrope] - Wrong in this case.
[mary a schneidt] - FB, get a life! She is sending a message that if she can do it, others who have weight issues can as well! Back off FB!
[shirley elzey pancoast] - Stupid !! You can post barely coveted boob pics !!
[angie higgins] - Oh sure this photo is offensive but yet no one reports photos of guys abs, girls posting their cleavage or back side. People make no sense whatsoever.
[ned earley] - So now will Facebook remove the photo that you just posted?
[erin barry] - People can post themselves in skimpy clothing, or barely nothing and that s ok, but a woman proud of her journey can't? Watch out FB. It is easy to delete you
[stephani mueller] - Really? I reported photos that someone posted a video a man shooting himself in the head, another of thedead body of woman murdered by her husband. They told me it didn't violate Facebook terms...really?
CBS 5 AZ - KPHO: A woman posted on Facebook a photo of herself getting into one leg of size 20 pants she used to - 200th Comments
[jona henry] - They let racists post
[sonia niner blade] - she has a right to be proud of herself. facebook is stupid.
[linda m wheeler] - that is ridiculous
[milly alicea] - Crazy! She's a inspiration!!!
[deb craven] - I think someone at fb just wants to be a pain. I've seen lots of photos of before and after weight loss/ getting fit.
[cris cross] - Funny how often i see something like this where they are trying to control every aspect of your life and people still get on here and say "its ok i agree". I have to assume half this country would like to sit in a cell. Just to agree with they're captors. Well. I officially believe this country is screwed. Good luck everyone.
[cris cross] - Facebook thinks they are your mommy. They tell you what is ok to think do or say.
[karen erdrich] - If they're gonna delete THAT pic, then they have to delete ALL the before/after weight loss pictures.
[julie still] - Stupid.... and ridiculous that FB would consider this "promoting idealized physical appearances."
What about losing weight to promote a healthy life ... one that is not plagued with health issues because your obese. She should be proud.
There are people out there abusing animals, children etc and FB wants to police THIS? And WHY is FB the Socially Acceptable Police anyway? Who died and made them king of what is considered "promoting idealized physical appearances."?
[sasha bunger] - Multiple people would have complained for FB to ask her to take it down.
[shanel pfutzenreuter] - Dumb. Good for her. She's proud of her weight loss and isn't being negative in any way.
[nancy prince gagnon] - FB is way off base on some things and totally not on base with stuff that has no reason to not be taken off!
Free speech AOK
Does it really include some pics and not others!???!
The pant picture definitely is NOT extreme!!!!!
[rita brenke] - if she took the pants off, then they probably would not say a word
[rox granberry] - Fb really has their priorities messed up
[laura cambeis] - Guess I can't post my 0's then huh
[celeste ruppelt] - Congratulations to her for doing what so many of us should. If we all could do this, FB wouldn't have to have such a self-protecting policy. They surely violate the exploitation side of this.
[david bevell] - Simply post a before and after photo!
[lee taylor] - Some of her JELLUS "friends" probably complained. I hear if something gets enough complaints they take it down, but not sure if that's true.
[colette binkley] - There have been so many things that shouldn't be posted, and this one should not be one of them She exposes nothing, and if weight loss is a problem then the advertisers of exercise and weight loss products should be banned also
[kimberly strickland] - i think those pants are much bigger then a 20. this lady is proud of herself i see nothing wrong in posting this picture
[shelly thomas sacco] - I think they should focus more on the scammers, hackers and thieves trying to steal your info.
[spencer frasher] - Wow! I looked a lot better when I was 35, so if I post a picture of me when I was 35, I would be in violation?
[marc dewease] - Needless to say, like everything else politically correct, they miss the point.
[lucia perry] - This must be a rumor.
[kathy abuelhawa-varela] - R they serious! Facebook has pictures of nudity and they don't take those down but a woman who did something miraculous, is supposed to take down her pic! Well we know what direction fb want to take! Next stop porn and discrimination!
[shawn monzingo] - Facebook's censorship of what is inappropriate to post or okay to post is a total failure.
[shannon galica] - Congrats to the lady its not easy to lose that much weight, she deserves to be proud of it, shes not trying to hurt anyone way to darken her success fb!!
[denise carbajal] - I hope it stays , this could help someone else to get healthy .
[chelsea sullivan] - That is outrageous! I have seen some pretty nasty pictures posted on here by mostly females half naked and that seems to be okay with Facebook? WTF?!
[rodgee kiyaa aanii] - Facebook is Not Good!!
[bill haselrick] - This is a positive message and should be allowed
[shirley lambert] - It should be allowed to stand as a good example
[linda tucker la londe] - That doesn't even make sense.
[dean barto] - I guess they prefer obese.
[stephanie leuty gervais] - That is really strange considering our group does it all the time...
[susie sangren] - If she is not naming the Product she can posted on FB ..they .should do their Research I seen a lot worse on FB , all the SELFIES some are real racy.
[tonya landin] - I have seen a lot worse
[rosie quintana] - beheading are ok but his lady isnt omg http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/22/facebook-allows-beheading-videos-graphic-content_n_4143244.html
