In brief: Agree to disagree

This may be one of those areas where you have to agree to disagree, because it's impossible to force someone to agree with you.
The more important question is why you feel you "have to lie" about your actions, when legally you're an adult? If you aren't yet living on your own, there may be house rules you need to follow out of respect; if you're on your own, your decisions are yours and your bf's.

In brief: Good Luck with That

I am 54 years old and I am still having trouble getting my mother to be ok with the profession i chose.
There really isn't a way to get someone to be ok with something. However, it might help to sit down with her and make sure you really understand what her concerns are. Listening is very useful but hard when strong feelings are involved.

In brief: Tell the truth

Lying will cause you to lose your mom's trust on you, you need to face the challenge of facing the moment of truth soon or latter. It is always best to tell the truth as soon as possible.
