Collect photo of Slimmer Emma Gregory before she lost weight .A woman who piled on the pounds after she feared leaving the house due to her extreme Tourette’s is now a healthy weight – thanks to an implant in her BRAIN. See SWNS story SWWEIGHT. Emma Gregory, 27, has suffered from the condition since she was aged three and would regularly lash out with her arms and loudly swear. But her ticks became more severe a few years ago, and she was left unable to even make a cup of coffee herself – and even broke her own arm in a spontaneous outburst. Embarrassed Emma eventually became frightened to leave the house and her weight ballooned from 8st to 18st in a YEAR as she gorged on ice cream and chocolate. But the determined dieter shed the pounds after doctors said she might be eligible for a revolutionary brain implant – but only if she was slimmer. She is now a healthy 11st and 5lbs after the successful operation last year halted almost all her ticks, and she was finally able to exercise and cook her own healthy meals.
