It's understandable that you wouldn't trust the rope, especially given how much lighter I am, but the pulleys at the top and the friction caused by the belay plate and karabiner really help a lot. Really, the only thing you have to worry about are the skills of your belayer, which are going to be at least adequate, and very good where people like Steve and Andy are concerned.
Though I admit I still have reservations about being belayed by unsupervised novices, especially after a minor slip-up a couple sessions ago... Pun not intended of course :)
