Hello: Here´s a good trick I learn, that worked well with my first Labrador. By then I used to live in a house with a bacyard, now i live in an apartment. Watch your dog when he/she goes to the backyard. When he pees put an old newspaper page on the pee. Then extend the wet page on the yard and put another page of a newspaper on top of it( this second one has to be clean and dry) Put some rocks on the corners of the newspapers. Your dog will surely pick that place when he has to go. Leave the pages there for no more than two days. Then repeat the process.

I feel the first step to to actually get an x-pen for her during the day. Put her food, water, toys, small crate w/bed, and weewee pad in there. She will probably be happier there, and more inclined to eat. This becomes her happy place. It also has a bit more space for her to able to get up and be around. Use only a small crate for bedtime.
