My Leopard Stopped Eating!

I have not had my leopard for very long, but the day I brought her home she ate(quite rare for the stress the car ride gave her) and up until a few days ago, she ate like a pig, which was why i called her little miss piggy. She weighs about 10 grams more than when I got her a few weeks ago.
I cant find my tape measure, but I think her plastron is about two inches, maybe two and a half, should I be worried she only weighs 200 grams? And how long can she go without eating before I should really get worried?
She is still active and seems fine. I have tried to get her mouth open, not any easy task, and have failed. I gave up not wantiong to put more stress on her. Can ayone help?
