Neither. I measure my overall health by my metrics from my physician: Blood pressure, resting heart rate, cholesterol level.

Height/weight and BMI never factor in. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and my BP and cholesterol are the lowest they have ever been.

Now as far as fitness, I guess I could say cardiovascular fitness as measured by endurance-type activities like walking, hiking, running.
