Inflated file sizes for webp files

Hi guys, I optimized 89 pictures and saved them in webp format, then used media manager in Editor X to upload them to a new website I’m creating. When I put a compressed picture of 27kb on a page and publish the site, the same picture is about 209kb when I download it from the published site (through right-click → save image). This matters because I will put 88 pictures on there, it would normally be 3MB in total, but now about 18MB.

I had JPEG before, but recreated all the pictures in webp because it looks nicer. Should I go back to JPEG?
