I would say a big yep.
As I lost weight I was doing some incredible lifts but they diminished as I lost muscle as well as fat.
My back strength was phenomenal.
Now I am building back up but trying to avoid the fat.
If you want to keep the muscle, eat protein and weight train.
It's very easy to lose both muscle and fat with weight loss. Some would say unavoidable.
Interestingly, I can only now squat the difference between my start weight and my current weight plus the weight of the bar (281-171+15lbs)!
