You'd be heavier..... The atmosphere wouldn't pull you away from the earth because there would also be an increase of air particles on the other side of the earth, pulling you towards the earth. So the net gravitational pull would cancel. The grand result would be an increase in the total mass of the earth causing you to be pulled harder to the earth's center of gravity. In other words, you'd get heavier.
