Most keep a food or a fitness journal, but you should also keep a Compliment Journal. Anytime someone compliments you, write it down! Even when you don't notice your weight loss, someone does. When you are having a bad day, go read those compliments and perk right up.
I have a 3-sectioned notebook for fitness, nutrition and my copmpliments, but any notebook would work.
I think a big part of me not giving up is the motivation and positive feedback from my husband. He is always picking my spirits up and constantly giving me compliments to make me feel better and to continue to try to get to my goal.
