Help my jeans fit without feeding me. Is it unreasonable to imagine that I can alter my jeans to fit me?

I've dropped a size or two in the last couple of months. As a result, several of my favorite jeans don't fit me. I'd like to make them fit me, but I don't know how to sew. I do have a sewing machine that is still in the box from when it was gifted to me. Can you point me to any resources that will help me (a novice with little time or handiness skill)? Or should I just take them to a tailor and see if they'll do it? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy new jeans?
