‘I’m tired of being sad and exhausted’: Lisa Curry reveals she struggles to get out of bed and has lost all motivation to exercise following her daughter Jaimi’s death
Lisa Curry has reflected on the anguish of losing her daughter Jaimi, eight months after she died at the age of 33.
The former Ironwoman, 58, said that mourning her daughter has left her so heartbroken that ‘some days it’s just plain hard to get out of bed’.
‘Analysing the constant thoughts of losing our most precious firstborn, our Jaimi, has been sad and exhausting,’ she wrote in her column for The Sunday Telegraph.

She continued: ‘It’s overwhelming. It’s never-ending. I’m tired of being tired. I’m tired of being sad and exhausted.’
The former Olympian also revealed that she lost the motivation to exercise in the wake of Jaimi’s death.
‘I’m sad that the fun in my soul has disappeared. But I’m sure that’s not how our loved ones who have passed would want us to feel,’ she wrote.

Lisa, who has since launched Australia-based women’s health and lifestyle company, Happy Healthy You, is on a journey to inspire others.
‘My muscles ache so much, and the pain feels like I have been hit by a truck. But, despite all these negatives, I still have a life to live. We all do,’ she wrote.
Lisa shared the tragic news of Jaimi’s death in a social media post on September 15 last year, one day after her passing.

‘Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,’ she wrote at the time.
It was later reported that Jaimi had battled alcoholism and an eating disorder before her death at a Sunshine Coast hospital.
Lisa and her ex-husband Grant Kenny, 57, are also parents to son Jett, 27, and daughter Morgan, 29.
