Why are the weights of the stocks/ETFs in my motifs different from the original weights I entered?

When you entered your original weights, they were calculated based on the stock/ETF prices at that time. As security prices constantly change so will the value of each security in your motif. This causes a change on the dollar weights of your motif. As the value of one of your securities increases relative to the rest, its weight in the motif will also increase. The same holds true if the share price of a security decreases, its weight in the motif will also decrease.
