How to maintain the project management momentum?

I have finally convinced the main executives in my (small) company to adopt project management, and so they did. But now, I feel that the "project management momentum" among team members and executives is rapidly fading and I don't know how to maintain it?

Any advice? I just hope we won't go back to the old way (where nothing was treated as a project) since I had a very hard time selling project management to both my executives and my team members.

Have you considered doing an OPM3 assessment?  This might help identify next steps to take to improve project management practices and increase value.  This does't have to be a formal assessment and can be conducted quickly.

You will also need to look at what value project management has provided.  This may be difficult if there hasn't been enough time or you haven't adopted the best set of practices for your circumstances. But if you can identify value, be sure to brief the executive team on what you were able to provide.
