I will have to say that during my weight loss journey this year, I never lost my motivation, but that's because that was where my focus was: taking care of my body and making sure that I got healthy. As long as I committed each day to eating healthy and exercising, that's all I needed to do...and I just did it day in and day out...and losing 125 pounds and going from a size 26 to a size 8 in the process.
Now what motivates me to maintain the weight is all the things I'm able to do: play with my nephews when we all get together, run 8 miles on a cold Sunday morning, wear a sexy cocktail dress...I certainly couldn't do all of that when I was 285 pounds!
So the key is to make sure that your motivation comes from within and that there's always fuel going to that inner fire. Put yourself FIRST, because if you don't, everything else falters.
