Hi Li -
When you save your packaged workbook, you are also embedding the 2GB Access extract inside it, so the file size of the twbx will be substantially larger than when you aren't including data. This is by design.
If you don't want the file to increase in size, consider locating the extract file somewhere where your colleagues can download it, and send them the twb instead of the twbx file.
I would suggest investigating adding one of your filters to Context as away to potentially speeds things up. If your filters are using the "Only Relevant Values" option, you might try switching to "All Values in Database" to avoid additional (unnecessary) queries being executed.
Hope this helps a little?
Thanks for the reply. It is only me using Tableau Desktop so my colleagues can only view the packaged workbook. I tried using only one global filter and it reduced a bit.
