I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
However, I do want to keep my last name for professional reasons.

How are you going to do that? Professionals generally get paychecks...paychecks generally have to be in a legal name. If you change your legal name to your husband's name, then your professional name is no longer your legal name. It's pretty impossible to maintain 2 names.

In most places, a person can choose any name under which to transact business as long as it is not for fraudulent purposes. Some states may have other requirements, but pretty much people can choose their names and enter into legal contracts, even without needing to get a court order. The pseudonym will have the same force and effect as the person's true legal name.

Problems would occur for social insurance purposes (and certain other purposes, like passports, etc.) if the name used for such purposes doesn't match. So, in these instances (like for payroll, where tax and social security withholding and reporting is required), people would use their legally documented name-- namely, the one on their social security card. But there is no reason their business cards, name plate and other listings can't be the pseudonym or "professional name."

So, generally, a person can use any number of pseudonyms as long as it is not for fraudulent purposes. Most people wouldn't want to try to keep up with having more than one extra name, but theoretically, it's perfectly legal.

That was my point. Sounds like a huge PITA to try to remember who I told which name to...I'd rather just use one.
