These particular pants aren't perfect, but they really are the only things I like with this sweater that I can wear at the moment.
If I were not losing weight I would make some alterations on the pants, (the folds at the pocket require a simple, but time-consuming, fix) but it is not worth the time at this point. They will get me through a little more of this season. Better to spend the time making new pants. I have a few different shades of maroon wools, and hopefully one will go with this sweater. I also think a pair of dark khaki or olive green pants would be lovely and I might have something that will work. Certainly both colors would work with many other things as well. Jeans in a dark wash are another possibility, but again, I have none that fit me now.
I will get there, I'm still working through my priorities, weighing what I want in fit and style, knitting and sewing projects, versus the demands of exercise, trying to eat well, and reaching goal weight. It is not so much about being a particular weight, or even "thin" but about control and overcoming the penalties of a few years where control went out the window and stress ruled the day.
At the moment diet and exercise have priority, and everything will follow suit, hopefully in a measured fashion.
