Wink Weigh Chicken Raw?

Hi, So I am cooking chicken and weighed it in raw at 570grams which is like 20oz. I wanted to see how much it weighed after cooking it and the scale jumped to 370grams. :-| I've read your suppose to weigh it raw because the water evaporates but it still hurts to see it weigh so much less.
