She’s growing up so fast! Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 26, took to Instagram on Aug. 5 to share her senior portraits as she prepares for her senior year of high school. The photo carousel (seen here) features a smiling Alana in a traditional black graduation shawl in previews of the stunning professional snaps and a behind-the-scenes photo of her having her photo taken. Two other pictures show Alana with a big smile while representing her high school in a black long sleeve shirt that reads “SENIOR” and a white “WCHS” pleated tennis skirt. “Graduation Year!!” Alana enthusiastically captioned the beautiful pictures.

Senior year isn’t the only big event in Alana’s life. In July, she announced she was preparing for weight-loss surgery in hopes of losing 125 pounds to reach her goal weight of 150 pounds. The surgery takes place shortly after Alana’s birthday on August 28, when she turns 17. The exact procedure Alana is scheduled to receive is a suture-formed endoscopic cuff, which is a “non-surgical outpatient procedure” that reduces the capacity of the stomach by 70 to 80 percent without having to physically cut the stomach smaller.

Alana’s mother June “Mama June” ShannonThe 42-year-old, with whom she has a very strained relationship, said she found out about her daughter’s surgery publicly and wasn’t entirely happy with her decision. “I support if Alana wants to get that, but I would say she has to wait until she’s 18,” the Mama June: Road To Redemption star, who previously had weight loss surgery herself, told TMZ on 27. July.

Alana herself has spoken out about her own hesitations about having the surgery, but ultimately decided it was the best decision for her. “I just want to make sure I really want to do this before I just do it,” she told Entertainment Tonight of her thought process. “I want to make sure it’s not something that’s going to kill me. And I just want to make sure it’s something I really want to do before I go and do it.

The TLC reality star then explained why the surgery is in her best interest. “I know for sure I could go to the gym and I know for sure I could go on a diet and I know for sure I can do that to lose my weight,” she admitted. “I’ve tried. I’ll say I’ve tried, but the one thing about me is that I don’t have any motivation. I don’t have any motivation to just go to the gym every day. I don’t have any motivation to continue eat healthy because I will eat what I think is good.”
