Once you've done that, it's a good idea to create a password backup disk. Once you can log back on, go to Control Panel>User Accounts, and click on the "Create a password reset disk" on the left. You can create it on a CD or a USB. More details here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Create-a-password-reset-disk .
If you're prone to forgetting logon passwords, this is another, easier way to recover a lost log on password. Be sure to keep the CD/USB in a safe but not obvious place, preferably under lock and key.

This weeks assignment in my CIS class was exactly this. Francis and sflatechguy's advice is spot on.
