look up any word, like half chub:
 
1.
To be making positive progress against a hardship or challenge.

This can both be used to compare directly to the ideal state you're intending to reach or compare against within a challenge, or can be used to compare against a previous state you held when striving against the same challenge in question.
1: Are your health problems still bothering you?

Yes, but I'm pulling positive for the most part.

2: How are you doing on your homework? Think you'll get it done in time?

I had a delay when friend called, but I'm still pulling positive.

3: How are you doing at improving your racing time?

Still not where I want to be, but I'm pulling positive.
