Renata Neia, a secretary from Colinas do Tocantins in Brazil, was having some issues with her self-esteem after gaining a lot of weight during her second pregnancy. However, she found a creative and relaxed way to deal with it. One random day, she decided to take a picture, posing like a celebrity, and publish it on social media. Initially, her idea was to see if the diet she was on was actually working. But she didn’t expect what happened next when it caught the attention of hundreds of netizens. Renata attracted a large number of followers, including actress Giovanna Antonelli, who Renata is a fan of, and who she has met personally. Today, the protagonist of this story considers herself happy with her body and feels beautiful.
