Instead of using the dimensions to control file-size, you need to use compression. Try the "Save for web..." function.

If you're actually doing an icon, you should make it divisible by 16

in other words:
16x16
32x32
64x64
128x128

Gotcha. For reference, those would most normally be called a thumbnail. If you ever do get to doing actual icons, though stick to the size dimensions I recommended.
