Animation Shop

I do need help and I hope somebody out there can help me and save me from insanity (or from losing more hair still).

I'd like to do an animated icon and I want to do it with Animation Shop. The first Icon I did had 36 pictures and when I put it together it was 39,8 kb. But I wasn't totally happy with the result and did a few changes and when I put the new pictures together I have 171kb.
I still have 36 pictures, they're still the same size, the speed is the same rate and the settings I save them in AS are also the same and I still get the difference file size. Also when I do it in ImageReady.
I tried it with PNG8 and PNG24 but even if the size of the single picture changes I get this stupid 171kb. The filesize also doesn't change with jpg pictures.
I'm totally lost.
I do need all pictures because of the smooth transition and I can't use the function in Image Ready to optimize the size because it looks horrible then.
The thing disturbing me most is that it worked yesterday and that I'm probably doing something absolutely simple wrong...at least I can't think of something else.
Any ideas? I just don't know what else to do.
Thanks in advance.

P.S. Not sure if that's the right LJ but I suppose you have most knowledge about it. If I'm enterly wrong tell  me, I'm sorry then
