    She's not AS light on her feet.

    Well, I didn't call her.
    But it's not like she's going anywhere.
    Just remember,
    she's an old woman now.
    She's not as light on her feet.


    what"as" means here?

    A part of the sentence is elided. The full sentence would probably read

    She's not as light on her feet as she used to be.
