I do... I would start with some concrete goals, "micro" (meaning small and immediate) and "macro", which are longer term. Be realistic, be specific and make them measurable and attainable. Know the "avenue" you are going to use to make it happen (a gym, health club or work at home). If you are using a public facility, make sure you are given a tour of how to use the equipment and assess the idea of a trainer (if you can't afford it, ask about several free sessions).
You need to understand yourself and your limitations. Many people fail because they don't elevate fitness as a major endeavor and make a part of their lifestyle. It can be a huge challenge, involving activity, nutrition and determination.
