I have been working really hard at this losing weight thing and I am happy to report (via last doctor appointment weigh-in) that I have officially lost 8 pounds!  I know it is a baby step, but regardless it is a step.

Currently Steve and I are in the middle of a one-week GNC detox plan.  Overall, I am doing OK and thankfully the plan doesn't cut out food all together.  But, I am still hungry.

I am dreaming about eating a cheeseburger.  However, I only have to make it one week, and I believe I will stick this out.

Along with shakes, vitamins, and a detox beverage, you also eat a healthy diet.  The funny thing is that I am really not a huge dessert cravings are more for greasy appetizers and salt.  Mozza sticks were sounding VERY GOOD.

I found the PERFECT RECIPE (actually several recipes) on Pinterest.

All you need is string cheese (I used the low-fat option), egg roll wrappers, and cooking spray.

Folding in the outside corners of your egg roll wrapper, roll your string cheese in the wrapper, and seal the edges using water. It was so easy that Mur-Man did these steps.

Next, you should spray the cheese stick with a light covering of cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.

There are different versions of this recipe.  Of course you could fry them in hot oil in a pan (but this would add a lot more calories).  I was completely satisfied with the oven version, because it was not greasy and overall was delicious.

Next time, I think I will add a slice of jalapeno (creating a jalapeno popper) or even add some Laughing Cow Cheese.  Overall, they are delicious, and I do plan to re-create.
