She's probably in premolt. Keep offering her food once a week. Don't leave the feeder in the cage for over 24 hours. Keep water dish full then sit back and wait..........and wait:)

My male LP used to eat voraciously, but stopped, and has not eaten for about 6 weeks or so. His abdomen has gotten really dark, so I am assuming he is getting ready to molt.

Just have to hang in there and wait.
