Your motivation to lose weight is affected by your goals. If you have already attained your short-term weight goal, set some new goals or standards. Keep setting your goals farther and higher. You may fall back into your old habits if you don’t have new goals. New, higher goals give you something to look forward to. It's harder to maintain something than to achieve something new, so you should raise the bar whenever you reach a goal.

For example, when you have lost 5 pounds, don’t just aim to maintain the loss or to lose another 5 pounds. Try changing your goal to lose eight pounds.  You can also set a goal to lose more inches, or exercise at least twice a week. Set higher goals for yourself, but keep them practical. Setting and achieving new and higher goals can help keep you motivated.
