Good for you! It is great to start early and not wait until January 1st. Your chances of success will increase. Don't get too worried about the details (calorie ranges, water, macro-nutrient distribution); just start slowly and intuitively and adjust as needed. By Jan 1 you will sure know your body much better than today. Posting my weight, exercise, and calories daily has been my main secret of success, so if you feel like doing it, go ahead and give it a try!
This year, for the first time in my life, I started six months before Jan 1... and 2012 will be the first year in my life when my resolution will not be to lose 60 to 80 lbs, but to gain a 14% body fat percentage.
Starting with an advantage makes a world of difference.
