How Sam became a
magazine cover girl
By KRIS DANDO
Model figure: Sam Belsham was
styled and made up to the nines for
her Weight Watchers shoot in
Sydney, but did not realise she
would grace the cover.
Sam Belsham's journey from hor-
ror to healthy started with a
Facebook photo and ended up with
a photo shoot in Sydney.
Near the end of 2011 I went to
a social gathering,'' she said. A
few days later I saw some photos
of me tagged on Facebook and
thought, Wow, I didn't know I was
I thought I'd looked pretty good
Ms Belsham, who lives in Aotea,
had a 9-month-old son at the time
and the new mum'' excuse came
easily to her in explaining the
extra kilos. She and her husband
are into snowboarding and
wakeboarding, so she believed it
was a matter of time before her
80kg frame became slimmer.
But her confidence continued to
slip to the point where she would
not take her son to the pool
because she did not feel comfort-
able in a swimming costume.
Something need to be done and
she was not sold on diets, or
interested in going to a gym, even
though better nutrition was a big
goal for her.
It was more about making a
I had heard about Weight
Watchers, so I did some research,
went to one of the meetings and
that was it.''
The 31-year-old said losing 17kg
in six months, without running
marathons or giving up treats,
had given her an enormous lift in
It came down to personal
accountability and a better
relationship with food''. She
weighs a steady 63kg today.
Weight Watchers is all about
points -- every item of food has a
number of points. You don't
deprive yourself of certain types of
food, like chocolate, but it's the
type of food and how much you're
With the weight loss has come
more desire to do exercise and
keep fit. The lessons from Weight
Watchers would remain with her
forever, she said.
Her husband got in on the act,
losing 15 kilos at the same time.
I don't go to the [Weight
Watchers] meetings any more, but
I'm constantly keeping a tally in
my head of the points of all the
food we eat. I'm still eating treats,
but I understand nutrition and
finding a balance in your life with
Ms Belsham was over the moon
when asked to go to Sydney for a
Weight Watchers photoshoot in
She thought she would feature
in a future issue, and was told in
June she was the cover girl in
It was a cool experience and I
hope it inspires a few people. At
the end of the day you're your own
worst critic, so it's up to you if you
want to make a change.''
Vivere's gift to Samoa
Lifesaving lessons: A Samoan ambulance officer
receives training from Ascot Park charity Vivere in June.
Ascot Park-based medical charity Vivere has had a
busy winter, delivering 200 kilograms of medical sup-
plies to Samoa and training two dozen ambulance
Trustees Byron Williams and Celeita Chippindale
travelled to Samoa in June to train the Samoan Fire
and Emergency Service Authority staff in basic pre-
hospital medical care.
Training covered patient assessment techniques,
airway management, how to check blood sugar levels
The ambulance responders who completed this
course were very proud of the work they do,'' Mr
Williams said on his return.
Having this enthusiasm from the staff makes the
assistance we do more worthwhile.''
Mr Williams and Ms Chippindale said they were
privileged to speak to people who had seen all aspects
of the Samoan healthcare system and shared their
knowledge with Vivere.
The training and information gathering would help
Samoans receive more timely and appropriate care
when they call the ambulance, Mr Williams said.
We think it would be fair to say this first training
trip to Samoa is only the beginning of the training
that the ambulance response officers will receive.''
Vivere also delivered more than 200kg of donated
medical goods, all of which were gratefully received
by the Samoan emergency authority, Mr Williams
