I really don't mind the weight. Then again, I have good gear (and assume you do, too, jimbob86).
A 1.5" Andrews Leather gunbelt distributes well and minimizes flex. My new one is tiger shark leather, so it is extra rigid and virtually indestructible.
For the OP, flimsy belts sag, and let the gun flop around. This is uncomfortable, and is bad for concealment. A good carry rig (belt, holster, mag pouch if applicable) is a very good investment.
