Most also need accountability with others, for what you're doing for yourself. For this you could work with a health coach. There are also groups such as weight watchers, overeaters anonymous, and tops (taking off pounds sensibly) with regular meetings. Helps keep you on track.

Poor night vision: Two common causes are astigmatism, which gives people a lot of difficulty dealing with the glare from lights at night. Vitamin a deficiency can also do this (nyctalopia) but it is not very common, but it wouldn't hurt to take a daily multivitamin with vitamin a (most do have it).

You Can!: There are many possible explanations for why a person does not feel happy. Some disorders with symptoms of depression or anxiety might be the culprit. If so, see your doctor.
