Picture of Emergency Belt

I recently lost 20 lbs and counting.

Now the unfortunate thing is all of my clothing now don't fit. So belts where my best friend for thee past 4 weeks. I have been stabbing new holes in my belt ever 2 weeks till tragedy struck!

My belt broke!

Here it's is Christmas eve and I'm on my way to my my parents house with pants that will hit my ankles within 3 steps.

My options are: 1.) Go shopping on Christmas eve (blahhh) or 2.) improvise!

I choose improvise, The Instructables way!

(At my parents house wrighting this. The belt is so far undetcecable, comfortable and a success!)
