Default Skeleton weight

Hey everyone, today I was wondering how much a normal human skeleton weighs, my scale says it's 8'5 kgs. I looked for info on the internet and in many places it said that the weight of the bones may vary largely from one person to another (due to size and density of the bone), but for everyone, it should be 10% of their weight.
Then again, it doesn't seem right to me because then my ideal weight would be 85 kgs (and I'm 1'62 cm, not tiny but short).

Anybody know anything about this? I just can't seem to find a legitimate source on Google.
