Default Does size = strength?

I weighed in at 161 about a year ago but cut back to 155 by restricting my diet. I remember my max bench being at around 185-195 back then (able to do only 1 or 2 reps).

I got myself up to 205 for eight reps. When I cut back down to 155 I could still do 205 for 5/6 reps. Additionally, I don't appear to be as large or as thick as before.

What exactly happened? Is your size proportional to your strength or is there something else going on here?
