Bruhathkayosaurus matleyi?

How probable are the weight estimates for Bruhathkayosaurus? The old ones (175-220 tons), and the new ones (157 tons), both seem a tad heavy for a land animal. The lower one puts it in the range of the heaviest Blue Whale (160-180 tons), and the higher one far exceeds it. In my humble opinion, a land animal would be completely unable to support such a weight. A creature like this would be unbale to survive beyond childhood. How true is this?

P.S. Just out of curiosity, what were the estimates for Bruhathkayosaurus matleyi when it was still considered to be a theropod?
