She is still not 100 percent sure she's going to actually go through with her weight-loss surgery

Alana addressed recent reports that she'll be going under the knife following her 17th birthday next month

She will undergo a $13,000 procedure called suture sculpt endoscopic sleeve from a Queens, New York, doctor

Alana tells ET that 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 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

"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," Alana explains

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
