To go cold on something

Hi everyone

Is there a Spanish equivalent of the phrase "To go cold on something"?

I was trying to say, "I've gone cold on it," which Google translates as "Me he enfriado en ello," but I'm not sure if that's just a literal translation.

Would I instead say something like, "He perdido el entusiasmo por ello"?


Thanks

I would use perder, but I believe I have heard ponerse frio.

There is no equivalent idiom in Spanish, I think. Sometimes I've heard about a situation "se enfrió", like a relationship, or the enthusiasm of people about something, but not really about someone going cold on something.

Some proposals:
- Ya no me interesa.
- Ya no me gusta.
- Me dejó de interesar/gustar.
- Perdí el entusiasmo.
...
