As explained before, if your snake is a male, it may very well be refusing food due to this being breeding season. If that is the case, don't worry. Two weeks is nothing, and yes, they can lose a little weight. You can try a live pink if you want.. sometimes a live meal will be taken, but I still think you may not have a problem to begin with. This is just a guess due to the timing of the refusal to eat. Mine (the males anyway) always refused food at this time, too.

Make sure the temps aren't too hot and that everything else is fine. Did you change anything lately in the cage? I would still guess it is due to breeding season, but it doesn't hurt to check things out and keep an open mind. Good luck.
