Do you still remember the root password you entered? If so then use the username root and it's password to log in. Then go to System-->Administration-->Users and Groups, then double-click on the user you don't remember the password and change the password. Log out and log in again.

You don't remember the root password also? Then do as said here. If you have done so you can recover the user password as I told before.
