You'll have to say exactly what you're doing when PS reduces the size of your image, as well as which version of PS and what OS you're on. From Camera Raw's workflow on, you can have some setting that will reduce the file size. We can't tell what might be happening without more information from you—perhaps a screenshot or two showing what you're trying to do when your file is reduced.

What type of file are you opening? If you're opening a raw file and exporting as a JPEG, of course the file will be smaller.
