I think you should get them altered by a seamstress. That is a pretty large amount to shrink something. And shrinking is not a process you can control. They are more likely to shrink in length and not around the waist.

Jeans usually shrink in length and very little in the waistband. The waist band has to be removed and cut down and so do the jeans. You would be cheaper off buying new cute jeans.

The shrinkage usually is within the first couple wash and drys. Congrats on the weight loss. Don't know of anything professional outside out sewing them smaller. Which is a pain and could cost you as much as the average pair of pants.
