That's the nice thing, the more you can carry the more you can enjoy yourself.My girlfriend had 18kg (also first-night booze) when we started.
It was worth it.
I love having nice food on hikes, good coffee with milk, and whiskey - it makes the experience more pleasant. In the day you smash the trail, have a nice lunch on route, and in the evenings you enjoy the scenery and a decent meal with a night cap. Absolute bliss.
