It takes longer than 2 weeks for these changes to show up.  May take 30-60 days total for the changes to hit your report and score.  Just be patient.

Also, eliminating the line of credit will hurt your score, you should have kept it open, because now you've lost that line of credit (utilization is now higher), lost the payment history and the credit history.  Don't close accounts!
