Suspenders under the striped shirt?
Or a smaller belt.  Your pants my look like a family just moved out, but your pants will stay up?

Been where you've been, and wish you luck where you're heading.  If you don't already have one, stop at Home Depot and get an "Awl".  With one, and a hammer, you can make lasting additional holes in ANY belt to keep pace with your progress.

Note, I'm no Dr, dont play one on TV nor did I stay at a holiday inn last night.
I would highly recommend researching the practice of "fasting".
Back in the day, the narrative was "fasting burns muscle, not fat." - this is true, ONLY if you're lean.
Modern research evidences that Fasting is actually anabolic.

If fasting is too hardcore, eat one meal a day...because then you'll fast for 23:30.

Nevertheless, for keeping the britches up, yeah, if you hike over the belly it looks bad, but if you wear under your belly it also looks bad.
My only advise is to keep the belt tight.

All suppliers carry a rubber belt, actually used to keep your shirt tucked in but it will assist in keeping your pants above it.  Google flexible rubber belt
