:-)  It happens to everyone.

No you won't be able to convert as GIT tracks metadata differently. 
However, when you do initialize the GIT repository, you will be
downloading a highly compressed version of the metadata, which is then
used to "fast-forward" (i.e. inflate the current sources out of the
compressed metadata) your local copy to match what is on the server.

Hope this helps some!
