Depends what you're comparing to, but good VBR MP3 is rarely noticeably different then flac.

Because the file is so big I'm assuming that all flac versions of a track are big like that(hence the name "lossless").
You did something wrong. CBR MP3 cannot be encoded at over 1000kbps. The highest allowed is 320kbps for ordinary MP3. Likewise, FLAC will not be larger then the source WAV.
