Well I agree if you want to go into psychology you will need to go to graduate school, at least for a masters degree. And its not a weak major but it must include for the degree a fairly diverse support of courses. At Bryn Mawr I majored in psychology and didn't minor taking many courses in different areas. Then entered a clinical masters degree program before recently earning my license to practice in my state. So you have to think about how much education you want to get first, with just a bachelors your options are very limited.

Sure you can be a psychologist.

You are one already! Look up "implicit personality theory" sometime.
Now, if you want to be a professional clinical psychologist, and make a career of it, that's different.
No, you won't do that with a BS. You'll need to go to grad. school and earn the master's degree in clinical psychology and then I think you must pass state boards to prove you have mastered the intricacies of DSM-whatever-the-number-will-be.
I'm fairly certain that you can get into a clinical psych. graduate program regardless of the focus of your undergrad department. A high GPA and good GRE scores and good references are much more important.

Mind then body

Chris, I have a background in fitness and clinical/counseling psychology and would highly suggest that you first focus on your mentality, reasoning, and self perspective before you start worrying about your physical attributes. Being in shape does not guarantee you success or that success will be any easier.
I would suggest (since you appear to be strapped for cash), that you call local colleges and ask if they provide counseling services to community members via their graduate degree students. It may not be free but it will probably be discounted.
If this isn't possible please do join a help group that facilitates a 12 or so step program to better your thinking.

I found this info online that helped....

School psychology training brings together the knowledge-base of several disciplines--child psycholology and development; education with emphasis on special education; and clinical child psychology. A teaching background can be helpful but seldom required, whereas in most states you need a teaching degree for school counseling. In most states and most training programs, school counseling does not include training or work with special education populations.
Finally, in most states you will be required to have three years of graduate school training and internship to become a credentialed school psychologist--a master's degree alone is not sufficient, whereas most counseling programs are master's degree (one-year) programs
