    kaneda,
    An increase in gravity has no affect on your mass. It affects your weight if you are restrained from freefalling toward the gravitating object.

    Mass. From dictionary.com :noun
    1. the property of a body that causes it to have weight in a gravitational field.

    If you are on a heavier gravity planet, you will have to work harder to do the same as on a lighter planet. This is not time dilation slowing you down, but you just (as you say) weigh more, so have to work harder.
