A 30-year-old member asked:
can someone tell me how long will it take to go from moderately fat and weak to lean and strong?

Lean and mean: To get an estimate, if you're exercising well and controlling your calorie intake you should lose about 1-2lb a week depending on what you're doing. If you're doing good exercise you can estimate your time to lean weight at 1lb/week and over 6 weeks to notice increased fitness at a minimum.
