Default Word file with a lot of pictures. Picture size small, File size HUGE

I have a Word file that has approximately 150 pictures.
All of the pictures are jpegs. the size of each picture is from 47 KB to 225 KB.
The total size of all of the pictures is ~ 21 MB. Yet, the size of the file 127 MB!

There is very little text. However, all of the pictures are set in a series of three tables.

I would think even with a lot of table formatting I was expecting no more than double the size of the pictures (~ 40 MB)

Any idea why the file size is so large and is there anything I can do to shrink it.

Use Dialog "Save as" and service "Compress drawings".
