Newton's second law, F=ma where a in this case would be the acceleration due to gravity on whichever body you happen to be standing and F would be the weight. Weight is another way to say "force due to gravity". When talking about weight on earth this is commonly seen as F_g=mg where g is the 9.81m/s^2 that is the constant acceleration due to gravity.
