My understanding is that the leaner you are, the harder it is to preserve muscle while losing weight.

It is usually easier to convert fat into muscle. In my practice it was like this

That's true, it is, this is mostly due to the body's ability to adapt to a perceived "famine" when we are losing weight. This is why undulating calories as well as allowing the body to return to maintenance for a week after a prolonged period of weight loss is beneficial. It actually makes sense as to why you would lose less weight as you continue losing weight; you're technically doing less work. I'm an obese man sitting at 360lbs, if I run a mile, I would burn a whole lot more calories than someone who is 170lbs running a mile. As I continue to run a mile, I would also adapt to the work needed to do, therefore decreasing the effectiveness of that mile. Whether this is through weight adaptation or through efficiency is moot but either way less work is done by the body, therefore less caloric expenditure.

Does this make sense? Does this help?

That's the point - in order to achieve results without reducing the effectiveness of training, you need to gradually increase the load. The peculiarity of the body's work is to adapt to stress and increase endurance. If you want to lose weight, you need to progress in your activities. And, of course, monitor the amount of calories consumed and the quality of food.
