Losing weight isn't an easy task, it takes lots and lots of hardwork, a strict diet and a hardcore workout. A major goal of weight loss is to lose fat and increase muscle. You need to maintain atleast as much muscle as possible, if not increase. Sometimes you start losing muscle instead of losing fat, which might affect your overall health.
Muscles plays a crucial role in burning energy and losing fat. The more muscle you increase the more calories you will burn.
