This definitely happens to me. I think I'm only more motivated now because I just took a year off kind of maintaining the 80 pounds I had lost, and am now ready to tackle the second half of my excess weight.
Usually it takes me gaining a little extra weight for me to realize that I'm slipping (In November, I was at 268 pounds-which is TOO close to 300 for me) and I had to remind myself that the only way it's going to get better is if I made the change right then and there. Now, when I feel like giving up, I tell myself that the longer I stay down, the heavier my burden will be when I decide to pick myself back up (literally!)
Another thing that helps a lot is to get rid of the all or nothing mentality. There is no 'on' or 'off'. It's about a lifestyle. If I screw up food wise, I'll still exercise. If I don't exercise, I still try to eat healthy. It's about setting attainable goals and meeting them gradually.
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
