I discovered the Covington House brand at Sears while I was in between sizes (pants/sweats/capris). When stuff was on sale or in clearance it was as low as $4 - $10.
Now that I'm near goal I've got pants/jeans from 'Not your daughter's jeans' & Liz Claiborne. The pants have elastic hidden in the waist that hug your hips/waist and suck in your tummy...no awkward looking gaps or muffin tops. They'll look and feel good +/- 5-10 pounds within your weight range.
When it comes to pant hems and other alterations... I do it myself or have pros do the complicated stuff on expensive garments I plan to keep forever.

If you don't show up in your life, people will make it up for you.
Don't just talk about it, be about it.
Someone busier than you is running right now.
