How do I get rid of that “I don’t want to do anything” feeling?

I think the first thing to do is to assess whether this is something that is a recurrent theme in your life. If so, you may want to speak to someone (a therapist/counselor). Additionally, displaying visual of your why…a child, an old size, no medications, etc…having a visual reminder will help you to keep your eye on the prize.

Start by having a good night of sleep. Usually this feeling comes from feeling tired mentally and physically, and a good rest can help both. In the case you feel tired in spite of getting good rest, maybe there is something emotional going on. I would try and find the reason for that. It could be the case that you are mildly depressed and if so it is always good to talk about it

I do the 5 second rule. Simple, but it works. Just tell yourself you will do it at the end of a 5 second countdown. 5…4…3…2…1..do it!

First I remember why I set that goal in the first place.
Then I’ll imagine how sad I would be if I don’t reach said goal.
Usually the discomfort of doing something I don’t want to do at this moment, is not as bad as what I would feel later if I don’t reach my goal.

I personally know the feeling you are talking about, I feel that way almost everyday, what I try to do is to do it anyway. You feel much better after.

Get up and do anything – ANYTHING – straight away. Functional, practical stuff like brushing teeth, showering, cooking, washing dishes, tidying are good.

Hmm that’s a hard one but I’ve totally been in your shoes. I think the reason I keep doing hard things is because I know what it feels like to cross the finish line. I’ve come to realize that success feels so much better than being BFFs with the shoulder devil of procrastination. With that said, as nice as it would be to simply say, “ Hmm I think I’ll work out for an hour every day, go off sugar, and weigh ad much as I did when I was 16” it doesn’t work that way. That’s why I love this app! You can start with the smallest thinks like drinking a glass of water, eating a snack at a certain time, or even just breathing! Egyptian pyramids are some of the most majestic and beautiful pieces of architecture on the planet, but they are built one stone at a time! Do your best to not take on too much at a time, start with the small things, and make your way up! We eat sandwiches one bite at a time, if we tried to shove it in in one go, we would choke. It is the same with accomplishing our goals. Take on too much and we will choke, but take one bite at a time, and by the time your sandwich is gone you’ll have had a nice meal!

I feel like to get rid of that feeling you have to get up right when you start feeling that way and get out of the environment you were in when you had that thought or feeling totally separate yourself from what made you feel that feeling and then proceed to do what you don’t want to do

You don't, that feeling will still be there, but what does work is that you can shift your focus from it, and just think how good doing what you're supposed to do makes you feel, and not doing it makes you feel a little bit dissapointed in yourself.
