Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson is still not 100 percent sure she's going to actually go through with her weight-loss surgery, citing concerns over going under during the procedure and the ensuing pain.

Alana addressed recent reports that she'll be going under the knife following her 17th birthday next month and undergo a $13,000 procedure called suture sculpt endoscopic sleeve from a Queens, New York, doctor. 

These reports say the goal's to slim down from around 275 pounds to 150 pounds. 

while the weight-loss surgery is "still in the works," it's certainly not something she's 100 percent ready to do, at least not yet. 

"I just wanna make sure that this is actually something I wanna do before I just go and do it," 

"I wanna make sure that it's, like, not something that's, like, gonna kill me. And I just wanna make sure it's something I actually wanna do before I go and do it." 

And while Alana is cognizant of the fact that a consistently healthy diet and gym regimen could lead to the results she's eyeing, she's not shy about wanting to take the faster way there.  

"I know for a fact I could get in the gym and I know for a fact I could diet and I know for a fact I can do this to lose my weight," 

"I've tried. I will say I've tried, but the one thing with me is I have no motivation. I have no motivation to just keep going to the gym every day. 

I have no motivation to keep eating healthy because, like, I'm gonna eat what I think is good.  

I'm not [gonna] sit there and force myself to eat no Caesar salad because I think it's healthy. No. I'm gonna eat what I think's good. 

So, I just think I don't have motivation, and I feel like the surgery would be, like, probably the easiest way to just, like, lose it fast."  

Alana insists her case will be different. 

"If I do go through with the surgery, I think I would be willing to change my lifestyle because my manager told me, like, you basically lose 100 pounds basically instant[ly]," she says. 

Then, there's the genetics side of things as to why Alana thinks losing weight has been difficult.
