I've had the choking issue as well and it was GI related. Took a while to get a good diagnosis and proper treatment and I'm mostly ok now. Hope you get some answers and relief.
I use a fitbit and my phone apps for measuring miles. I will check around to see if there is anything on spark that does the same. There have been a lot of changes and enhancements to sparkpeople over the years with new features being added all the time. There may be something. If I find anything, I will let you know.

I did a quick search tonight and I found this: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness

I have never tried using it but it may be what you are seeking. I will keep looking.

I did some more looking today. I thought that the sparkpeople app had a gps tracker on it at one time as I recalled using it once or twice. The most recent update to the app (aug/2015) removed that feature and sparkpeople recommends using a "partner app" . I have an apple iphone so I am somewhat familiar with what apps are available for it. There is a nike running app that will track your distance. You do not need to run, you can walk and it will track your speed and distance for you. the apple iphone has a built in app. I do not know it's name, but it shows up as a heart on my iphone screen.

You could also pose your question on the tech boards. Here is a link to information about one of the "partner apps" from the tech boards. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageb

Thankyou very much. Had a health issue and had/have to concentrate on that. I am choking a lot. See GI Doc today. Going to try and take a walk this am. Is there a walk map that works through GPS on this site that can measure the length of my walk. (I.e. 1 mile, 1.25 miles, etc) Any help would be appreciated. Sorry it took so so long to get back here. It's a beautiful day in TN!!! emoticon

Hi JM,
welcome. There is a lot of information here on Sparkpeople so take some time to look around. It's sort of like a scavenger hunt and there is a prize...a healthier you! Have fun.
