Snake weights

I need to know how big a snake of a certain weight would be. I've already googled 'snake weights', 'snakes+weight', 'python+weight', and looked at the Wikipedia pages for various different species of snake and a couple of snake websites. All of them had info on how long the snakes were, but none of them had anything on how heavy they were.

I'm writing a story in which one of the characters is a shapeshifter, and one of the things she can turn into is a snake. The one solid rule about her is that whatever else she manages to do, she can never change her mass. She weighs about 60kg (about 130 pounds), so roughly how big is the snake going to be?
