Get my head in the game

Weight loss motivation - I got a lot of great tips on a question I asked a little while ago, but I'm still having trouble getting my head together to make progress on my weight loss goals, so I'm looking for books on weight loss plans/motivation.

I have an exercise plan (C25K + strength training), and an eating plan (south beach diet) which are doable for me, but I'm having trouble staying on track. I've lost weight before, once a significant amount (50+), several times 5-10 lbs, so I know I can do it, but I'm just not as serious and motivated this time as I have been before, and I'm not sure what to do to get to that, "I'm going to do this no matter what!" place in my head. I'm looking for books that might help me understand why I keep undermining myself, and motivate me to move forward. I think part of the problem is that I don't have a clear idea of where I'm going and how I'm going to get there, so step-by-step information would be particularly helpful, and I think I'm also dealing with some emotional eating and depression issues. Again, I'm NOT looking for diet or exercise books, but I am looking for information on how to follow a weight loss process.
