Want to go FX but afraid of extra weight

Been lugging around a D7000 and usually one or two lenses, a few filters, and a flash in my fanny pack and find that to be a bit heavy. I'm thinking I want to go FX soon, perhaps a used D700 or the new D800 whenever that comes out, but worried that I will just be adding weight and not liking it much. Just spent 4 days in Paris and those days were long, like 14 hours on ones feet and running around like crazy to catch Metros, standing in line at the Eiffel tower, ect. Was trying to visualize what it might be like to have a nice FX camera and a few nice lenses (which are heavier too than my DX equivalents). Any suggestions?
