Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson is still not sure if she'll actually proceed with her weight loss procedure, citing concerns about getting under during the procedure, and the subsequent pain.

In an interview with ET's Rachel Smith at Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon's home located in Atlanta, Alana addressed recent reports

that she'll go under the knife after her 17th birthday this month to undergo a $3,000 procedure known as suture sculpt sleeve, 

which is performed by a Queens, New York, doctor. According to reports, the aim is to reduce her weight from 150 pounds to 275 pounds.

Alana informs ET that, while the weight-loss procedure is "still being developed," it's certainly not something she's 100 % ready to undergo at the very least, not yet.

I'm just trying to make sure that this is something I'd like to do prior to deciding to take the plunge," Alana tells

I would like to ensure that it's not something that's likely to harm me. Also, I'd like to ensure that it's something I'd actually like to do before I decide to take it on.

And even though Alana is well aware of how following a regular exercise and diet can yield the results she's hoping for but she's not shy about her desire to get faster to get there.
