You would actually weigh around 5 pounds less at the equator than you would anywhere else on the planet
Why ??
2 reasons

The equator is a big bulge and you would be further away from the center of the planet and have less gravity force .
Second , you’re rotating far faster at the equator, which means the planet is trying to fling you in outer space
