In the initial stage we set goals, in the end we achive them. What's the verb used in between, what is the veb used when you are in the process of making your goal happen?

to carry out a goal?

Are there any other verb that come to your mind?

How you you say it? Let's say: I've made a resolution to eat less for a month and now I'm in the middle of ............... this goal. (carrying out?)

In many contexts you can use "work towards". However, in your specific sentence, "working towards" does not fit tremendously well, partly because of "middle of", and partly because eating less doesn't seem to entail "work". If it's around the middle of the month, you could say "I'm (about) half way to achieving this goal".

Thank you, that's very helpful. Could you still just confirm whether "to carry out" works in the sentence above?

To me, the idea of "carrying out" a goal does not seem quite right (although it is easy to find instances of this use). "carry out" means something like "perform", and it does not seem to me that you "perform" a goal. The goal is the end result that is attained by performing some action.

Thank you for clearing it up for me. I love this forum!
