When I opened up Fat Secret today I discoved my userID had been changed to some random person's email address!

Megan Hornsby is not my name. That is not my email address. I did not change it to that. And I have no idea how to change it back. I am JessWhatINeeded ! Not meganhorsnby!!!

Please help. Has this happened to anyone else?

I sent an contact request to FS, but nothing is fixed.

That is so very weird! We love JessWhatINeeded and want her back! Send an email to that megan person and tell her to back off!
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

That's very weird and creepy. I would suggest changing your password!

Looks like you are still Megan today... Hope they can fix that soon. What a weird thing! What about deleting your account and start a new one, with a new password?

That would be so sad to have to delete this account and start a new one! You have SO much information and so many journals about your journey. Come on, FS, fix this!!!

Still Megan, huh? I wonder if there is a Megan Hornsby out there wondering why her account is now named your email address. At least today I could access your journal entries.

Have you tried emailing the address?

They emailed my home account on Sunday night. I didn't read it till last night. They were confused as to what happened as well & asked what I'd like my name to be. DUH! what it was before.
