I didn't have a belt for a few weeks and made my own. It's not the safest plan but it worked fine for me.
I just bought elastic at a fabric store (or you could probably get it at walmart) and then just put a safety pin at either end of the elastic so that I could put the safety pin through the little tabs on the sides of the wafer that the belt goes through. It worked just fine! If you don't have money, this is a great option...the elastic is like $2.
