You would do this poor baby a huge favor and possibly save her from death if you would listen to the advice you have been given.
Set her up in a proper enclosure that is enclosed and get temps and humidity correct along with the diet and soak daily.
If you don't want to use a uvb bulb then that's fine, let her be outside a half hour a day. However, she has to have proper heat, basking spot, temps, humidity and diet greatly improved in an enclosed chamber!
A baby in the wild would not be up and out in the sun most of the day, be careful. She should be in the closed humid enclosure most of the day.She has access to sun most of the day, a nice basking spot, and well shaded area to go. I changed the enclosure to ideal specs too.
Fresh water daily, got most recommended sulcata foods, and making sure her temps are always 80s even at night.
Warm water baths @ 80-85 degrees for 30 minutes a day

The nice basking spot, if it's not 95-100 then it's not going to work. They have to be able to digest their food and the 95-100 temps is what helps them be able to do that.
Hopefully you do have it right for the torts sake.
100 even 110 is fine as long as she can get out of it.She has access to the sun part of the day starting at sun rise. Her enclosure is mostly in the shade.
She never over heats, and always moves to shade when she wants.
Her temps when basking never pass 100 usually 95-98 degrees.
She is NOT alert, look at her eyes in the first photo here. Also soak her in warm water for a bit and see if you can gently pull off that stuck poop on her cloaca.
If you just do this your tort will turn around. Believe how serious the minimum temperature of 80F is. And HUMANS wear sweaters as it traps the heat we create. Tortoise don’t create heat. Hence why she likes your body heat because she’s freezing to death in your room in a rabbit cage or in a cloth sweater. She is not strong if her back legs don’t work. It is not too late, make the changes while she is a baby. When she’s older you can keep her outside to thrive.Your little tortoise is making a valiant effort to stay alive under not so good conditions. In all your pictures its eyes are either closed or not open very wide.
The first few pictures show a very hard poop stuck to the tail, which gives me a clue as to why it can't use the back legs.
1. Set this baby up in a covered, humid enclosure and stop handling it.
2. Maintain an overall temperature, day and night of 80-85°F
3. Soak it daily for a half hour in warm water
