bw
Explanation:
You're right on the mark here. As you probably know, "lgv" is "legemsvægt". See the first reference link for Google results for bw + "body weight". Second link is a pairing of "legemsvægt" with "BW" at page 34 from Miljøstyrelsen. I might capitalize in English as BW, but you will see bw and Bw as well.
