Pork but looses too much weight during cooking

:huh: I am an absolute newbie but not a type A personality by any means (so please take it easy on me ;) ). I have learned how to control temperature and cook low and slow by doing loads of research and the good ol’ trial and error.
I have noticed after doing a few pork buts that they tend to lose a lot of their weight during cooking.
Example: 8.6lb but cooked for approximately 15hrs at around 200-250ish F (give or take) will yield me a 5.6lb cooked but (absolutely impeccably cooked) but still 3lb short????
Is this normal or am I doing something wrong??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers from Canada.
