With a gym membership & a trainer you should definitely start seeing results! Just think, hopefully by this time next year you will be showing those other girls in college up! Giving them a run for their money, lol =) It's great that your family is being supportive. Now you have more of a reason to do it! Don't let them or yourself down. Motivation and consistency is key. You can do it!
