My priest celebrated Monday vespers right after the Liturgy. Does this mean that Lent started for me on 12.30?

It was exactly the same in my parish, but in the homily vladika Jerzy said that the Great Lent litrugically starts with the Great Prokimenon, however we start fasting (from food) from the midnight. I think it's a bit similar situation as with all-night vigils - some claim we can eat sth after it if we want go to the Holy Communion, and some say it's not ok
