I think you are reading too much into this. She’s your mother and probably just wants you to be healthy–not “fat,” but not stick-thin, either. Can you pay for the alterations yourself? She’s probably being mindful of money–alterations are not cheap! But none of this means she wants you to be fat.

Idk, my mom told me to be careful about losing too much weight, and I don’t think she was trying to sabotage me. Dresses can be taken in, but some styles won’t look as good if they have to be taken in too much. I doubt she’s trying to pork you up out of selfish reasons.

She might just be afraid that you wont fit in your dress after you get your alterations.  What if you keep losing weight and you don’t have time for anymore alterations.  When is your first alteration due, in December? Is it possible that she is jealous of your weight loss?  Is she overweight too?  I think that it is great that you lost all that weight and you should be proud of yourself.  I bet your mom is proud too even if she does not act like it.
