    grow thin

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Her wedding ring slipped--she had grown so thin.

    Grow thin = get thin = bec0me thinner = lose weight

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
