    Sorry, I can't let this go.
    My mother-in-law was a wonderful old lady, gone now, mores the pity.  She was over weight and never stopped talking, she could breathe whilst talking.  My mother is still with us, just had her 85th birthday, she is just the same as m-in-l, I think that may have answered your question.

    Assuming this is a serious question, then no.  Sound does not have weight.  Sound is simply the vibration of air molecules.  Sound travels as the vibration propagates through the air. 

    Air is expelled from the body as one speaks but also wasn't truly part of the weight of the body to start with.  So, you don't lose weight by talking because of the expelled air.  From a biological viewpoint, talking requires effort that requires energy which means you do burn calories in order to speak.  Of course, the amount of calories burned and the resulting weight loss would likely be almost negligible.
