You should not need to carry water - there is plenty around if you plan accordingly.
Alcool à brûler (meths with a nice parfum) is easy enough to get at supermarkets in even small towns...in 1litre bottles; I ask at refuges/anywhere and get top-ups. I carried a day or two of food on occasion - but did not really have to. You can eat in refuges and bivvy outside if you want.
I took a light down jacket - a fleece would be an equivalent - can get chilly in the evenings at 2500m.
A 250g washkit...fair enough if that's what you like.
I carried around 6-7kgs most of the time.
Basically if you are happy enough and fit enough to carry it without compromising fun....
Of course most of my 'campsites' were like this...
