What's confusing you is the ounces. The 8 ounces in a cup are fluid ounces. Since lettuce isn't a fluid, its a solid, you can't use the 8 oz per cup to measure it. You will find that one cup of marshmallows weighs a lot less than one cup of ball bearings. That's because the density is different.

Take one of your measuring cups and fill it with lettuce and then weigh the lettuce and then you will understand a little better.
