D850 RAW/jpeg file question

Im hoping someone can help me out with this quick question...

Using my D850, I always shoot RAW 14 bit lossless compressed and as expected the RAW file sizes range around 53mb to 57mb...

I do some messing around with timelapses/hyperlapses when I travel, and my normal workflow is to upload all the RAWs to Lightroom to do some basic editing then export the files as jpegs, before heading to After Effects...

I just noticed that even after exporting as jpegs each file is about 43mb to 49mb.

I must be doing something wrong, I was under the impression that jpegs should be much much smaller files? Im curious if any of you have recommendations.

Thanks for the help
