In brief: Visible ribs

Your mom may be concerned you have an eating disorder like anorexia.
Do you think you're overweight? Do you binge eat & then force yourself to throw up. What is your weight & how tall are you? Your body mass index may give us clues to the situation. If you're very thin & binging & purging, your mom's concern is valid & you should see a counsellor/ therapist to discuss the matter.
